Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

I discovered the remains of a book of Belgian graphic designer Joris Minne as I strolled over an antiques market in the Belgian city of Antwerp. The pages showed modernist wood cuts of Antwerp in the 1930s, striking graphical work in black and white.

Joris Minne (Oostende, 1897 – Antwerpen, 1988) belonged to an artistic group called the “big five” ("De grote vijf"), together with Jan Cantré, Jozef Cantré, Henri van Straten and Frans Masereel who formed after WWI.

I found the pages too damaged to buy (which I now regret), so the below represents what I found on my internet search.
