For a brief time, in the late 1930s, the Cubist-Art Deco master posterist, A.M. Cassandre, embarked on a series of stunning Surrealist-inspired covers for the American fashion magazine, Harper’s Bazaar. Thereby, Cassandre would have been captivated by the audacity of Surrealist range, from the depths to the shallows, in order to bring home a big catch of those customers whose elusiveness had driven him to the brink of abandoning commercial graphics.

In our gallery, not only Cassandre’s small format graphics, but those of other designers, offer a glimpse of the energies streaming out from the premise that everyone loves uncanniness.
