Incredible image.

Anyone seen the cover of 'Towering Toccata' by Lalo Schifrin?

I have set to see 'Man on a Wire' but will, I hope soon.

Wow. Talk about changing context altering the meaning of a signifier.

When, I say, when?

What year was this image made?

This reminds me of the sweatshirt I saw a young woman wearing recently featuring an illustration of the Challenger flying among the stars. I asked her where she got it and she mumbled something about finding it in a thrift store. I asked if she remembered the Challenger and she said she just thought the shirt looked cool.

It's like a travel brochure from the twenties advertising a relaxing spa in sunny Birkenau.

Does anyone have the link for a site with images of the World Trade Center destroyed in comic book form--I'm remembering one that featured something like ten different comic panels, as early as 1975 or so, with the towers destroyed. Google wades through a sea of WTC images, so I'm afraid I lost it.

The illustration was part of an advert published in Le Point - 19 Mars 1979.
