    Poster promoting Swiss nigthclub Veka-Glarus’ Spring events, designed and printed by Dafi Kühne.

    From Dafi’s explanation:

    Each event is formulated as a question asking about something that got lost at the last – or better upcoming – event. For example: ‹I lost my red cap with a soviet star at the Bajanski Bal concert. Did you find it?› – below the information about the upcoming Bajanski Bal concert. But also more abstract like: ‹After the last Futurerave I forgot the phone number of that very beautiful bartender. Could you please help me out?› or ‹Fai Baba stole my heart! Could I get it back?›.

    All the questions and statements refer to the lost and found departement at Veka-Glarus, that is always filled with loads of stuff that’s been left behind. In the lower right corner of the poster comes the answer: ‹For all the lost and forgotten things please just visit us at any event. Our lost and found departement is always filled with surprises.›

    The posters were letterpress printed at Benjamin Franklin Printing Co. in Richmond, Virginia, using freshly cast lines of type from a Ludlow Typograph. A video of the process gives some insight into the production techniques.
