This piece called “Futuristic” was part of the many items included in Crop4 and highlights the “future” as seen in the past thru the Bettmann Archives collection, and printed on old newsprint to replicate the times.
Every time we did a “CROP” catalog for Corbis, we were tasked to also include a calendar, and while we did not necessarily think one was needed, we tried to push the boundaries as much as we could. The one included on CROP-4 was quite an accomplishment. We developed each month of the year into a “flower-pod” that was constructed of each of the week days. Each “dot” was a day, and was die-cut - so as each day passed the year evolved, you would pop out the current date, leaving a hole.
