Firecrackers! An Eye-Popping Collection of Chinese Firework Art
Firecrackers! An Eye-Popping Collection of Chinese Firework Art by Warren Dotz, Jack Mingo and George Moyer is the perfect book for the summer. Firecrackers have long been a traditional part of festivals and holidays, and much care was put into the creation of labels, leading to the rise of the firecracker art that saw a peak in the 1950s and 19602. The book features over 180 such vintage labels, and is a glorious homage to an area of illustration and graphic design rife with black cats, cowboys and space flights.
