modern refrigeration

This is the amazing cover to a 1000 page textbook called “Modern Refrigeration and Airconditioning” from 1979. The insides are not as colorful, but still inspiring, and are fodder for my newest experimentation. Paint, ink, fabric. We’ll see.

Maybe some of the pieces will even make their way into my Etsy shop which is fast running out of time if a “spring” opening is still going to happen. Summer is holding off, but even the calla lily which we valiantly tried to kill last fall is shooting up to warn me that spring is almost over…

    Regarding the cover of Modern Refrigeration and Airconditioning”, beware copyright issues.

    The creator of that wonderful graphic may well be still alive, and be a keen Googler!

    What, exactly, have you in mind for it?

    Kind regards

    Very good point, Andrew, and I have done a little research (only on the internet so far). As far as I understand it I can reuse the interior pages as portions of my original artwork, ie: collage, as it changes the original context of the images and does not compete with the base material’s original purpose. If you have any information that could help direct me it would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    I work for an HVAC company and I thought that cover looked pretty cool.
