Huh?

It's kind of a hobby... seeing how deep I can
dive into the sea of information we
are all sinking in. Woosh

the dance of death

This is an anti-prostitution propaganda poster from 1912. The details are amazing and quite evident of it's temporal gender biases too. I like how the dancing floor gives way to the petulance below. The detail on the lamp ('red light' if you will) is also quite stunning. The childish inner voice is laughing at the 'puck' that is on the title above the image.


Like I said, my favorite detail is the lantern of death. Warmth is death, joy is disease. All that propaganda goodness. Fascinating stuff. (In a side note, I've been quite late updating this blog, right?)
