He worked at a time when corporate identity was virtually unknown in Belgium and was one of the country's pioneers in the field of graphic design, coming up with more than 350 logos and symbols during his career. Outside of his work in graphic design, he was also always very interested in paper art and produced several paper art books, of which 12 Owl Variations is one of his best-known.

         Rotation of the Andromeda Nebula from a Spectroscopic Survey of Emission Regions" in Astrophysical Journal 159, No. 2, Part 1, pp. 379-405

      Chicago University of Chicago Press 1970 - Perfect bound. Original white wrappers printed in black. Housed in a custom quarter brown morocco folding case. Ownership signature "Tammann" on the cover. Professionally rebacked to style, slightly toned and rubbed at the edges but overall very fresh. An excellent copy. First edition, in the original wrappers, of Rubin's key paper presenting the first observational evidence for the existence of dark matter. This copy with the ownership signature "Tammann" on the upper cover, likely the Swiss astronomer Gustav Andreas Tammann, director of the Astronomical Institute of the University of Basel and recipient of the Albert Einstein Medal. Vera Rubin was the daughter of an engineer who fostered her love of science, particularly astronomy, from an early age. She became the only astronomy graduate at Vasser in 1948 and, after discovering that her first choice of Princeton did not accept female graduate students, she earned her Master's at Cornell and doctorate at Georgetown. Rubin was particularly interested in the rotation of galaxies, which she had researched under the pioneering female astronomer Margaret Burbidge in 1963. At the time, galactic rotation had not properly been measured, but it was expected that the same law of motion that governs the movement of bodies in the solar system would apply to the stars in galaxies. As Newton had shown, the speed of rotation of the stars should drop in proportion to the square root of their distance from the centre. But when Rubin and her collaborator Kent Ford measured star speeds in the Andromeda Galaxy they discovered, to their surprise, that the stars at the edges of the galaxy rotated at the same speed, or slightly faster than, those closer to the centre. This violated the laws of both Newton and Einstein, and implied that the galaxies should have been fraying at the edges as stars were hurled into the void. The only explanation for this result was that some additional mass was holding the galaxies together. The concept of dark matter had first been proposed by astronomers Fritz Zwicky and Jan Oort in the 1930s, but was largely ignored. And because no one had predicted its effects on galaxies, Rubin didn't initially recognise its relevance to their situation. But as she explained in an interview with psychologist and author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, "Months were taken up in trying to understand what I was looking at One day I just decided that I had to understand what this complexity was that I was looking at and I made sketches on a piece of paper and suddenly I understood it all. I have no other way of describing it. It was exquisitely clear. I don't know why I hadn't done this two years earlier." What Rubin realised was that if the outer edges of the galaxy contained a halo of dark matter, the additional mass would hold these quickly rotating stars in place. Within a few years, other astronomers had constructed a theoretical framework for our understanding of dark matter, and we now have multiple ways to observe its effects on galaxies. The discovery of this mysterious form of matter has had a profound impact on our understanding of everything from the movement of stars to the very life and death of the universe itself. As astronomer Emily Levasque of the University of Washington at Seattle put it, "The existence of dark matter has utterly revolutionized our concept of the universe and our entire field; the ongoing effort to understand the role of dark matter has basically spawned entire subfields within astrophysics and particle physics at this point" Rubin received numerous honours for her work - she awarded the National Medal of Science in 1993 and became only the second woman after Caroline Herschel to receive the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. Rubin was long considered a front-runner for the Nobel Prize, and many believe that the Committee's failure to recognise her before her death in 2016 will be a permanent stain on the organisation's credibility.

      - [Soviet cooking book]. Handwritten album, with newspaper clippings to illustrate courses. [N.p., 1970-80s]. 265 pp. 29x21 cm. Cloth folder. Fine. An interesting and somewhat naive document of the time. Apparently the complier of this book tried to include as many 'international' recipes as possible, often putting the originating country in brackets. A lot of the clippings come from foreign newspapers. The ingredients however more or less match the assortment of the Soviet food stores. As a result we can see the attempt to diversify often scarce meals using the available ingredients. The sections included in the book are salads and cold starters; starters; meat, poultry and wildfowl; garnish, potatoes, cereals; vegetables; fish; conservation of food; dough products; deserts, jams and conservations of fruits and berries; pickles and marinades; desert, beverages, cocktails; other. The section on cocktails contains some of the simplest cocktails imaginable like 'Cocktail with beer and tea' which is essentially the 50% of cold tea with 50% of beer and lemon on the side (optional). Cocktail 'Cubanito' reminds us of ?uban-Soviet relationship, however the author of the book was not familiar with the Havana Club rum, so it was called 'Abana club' instead. Altogether the book gives 30 recipes for cocktails, including Campari, mulled wine, 'Old Russian', 'Polar Night', 'Winter tale', 'Flaming iceberg', etc. The author gives us 20 coffee variations, half of which contain alcohol. There are special subsection of recipes from the stale bread (9 recipes) including the method on how to freshen up stale bread. Author included advices on table manners: if you are taking the sugar cube out of the bowl, don't touch the cubes near it; don't blow on the soup to cool it; at the end of the book there are the tables of the cutlery that are appropriate for different courses. It's hard to imagine how one should obtain different types of forks in the reality of deficit. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         [A collection of 55 Vintage Photos]. [Supplied title: A Decade of Protest]. Photographic Archive of Protest Photos from the 1970s

      Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage, Luton, etc.: s.n. [but from the Hemel Press Archive], 1970s (various dates, but 1970-1975). Each photograph preserved in a Mylar L-sleeve; in a fine protective case. Sizes vary (generally: 12" x 9") Extraordinary Archive of English protest photos from the angry first half decade of the 1970s, providing high quality images of demonstrations, marches and protests on subjects local to Hertfordshire, north of London, and beyond. The photographs are large format black and white -- about 27 x 21 cm -- silver gelatin prints with details relating the location, participation and sometimes photographer to the verso. Dating from 1970-1975, the demonstrators are seen protesting against everything from the Vietnam War and Apartheid in South Africa, to road crossings and factory closures in Hertfordshire. Mostly landscape in format, the images are redolent of their era with evocative details of clothing and fashion with many images of home-made signs espousing the myriad causes. Some of the most dramatic images include a confrontation between police and anti-apartheid campaigners in Trafalgar Square, October 1970 with other photogaphs picturing 'Salvage Luton', builders demanding minimum wage, a campaign for nursery education, against Russian occupation of Ukraine (1972), the march of the Bangladesh Action Committee march, a 'Boycott the Circus' demonstration and 'Women's Campaign for Soviet Jewry' etc.

         Economist on Wall Street: Notes on the Sanctity of Gold, the Value of Money, the Security of Investments, and Other Delusions.

      The Macmillan Company, New York 1970 - First edition of this classic collection of early Bernstein writings. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For William- To show Wall Street has some good things about it. Peter Bernstein." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Preface by Gilbert Kaplan. Peter Bernstein's Economist on Wall Street is a collection of writings from 1955 to 1970. The book is especially interesting because so many of Bernstein's observations reflect the most important issues of the presentâthe outlook for inflation and its control, the intricacies of monetary policy, the future of the dollar, and the dilemmas of household finances. Bernstein was also concerned with developments in portfolio management, including the new influence of institutional investors and rules for optimal asset mixes. He provides light touches, too, as he indulges in fantasies and philosophical musings over a wide variety of topics. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Unpublished, London and Hastings 1970 - Patti Bratby¿s personal collection of her husband the artist (1928-1992) John Bratby¿s letters and poems written to her together with drawings, a sketchbook and an immense archive of around 2000 photographs by Bratby depicting his paintings, his wife and muse. The couple's relationship began in the mid-1970s when both were married to other people ¿ Bratby to the artist Jean Cooke ¿ and Bratby had achieved substantial success. 15 letters from Bratby on his own sunflower paper (22 sheets with 8 additional signed notes) which trace the couple¿s passionate if tortured relationship. ¿Dearest Lovely, my Darling¿ may be the opening to the letter but it will often continue apologetically: 'I love you so much more than I ever did, though one day hence, when you look back ¿ remember how drunk I get you may think that I don¿t¿¿ Many of the letters date from early in the couple¿s relationship as both escaped their first marriages; several of the letters are illustrated with Bratby¿s drawings, sometimes depicting the painter in amorous mode or in poetic vein: ¿Since I met you Sex is a Dream/ Quicksilver flows in a continuous stream¿¿ There are references to Bratby¿s ex-wife, ¿I know that I have to go, and Jean is so bloody that it¿s no fun being in the house¿¿ With the letters are a small sketchbook (7x11cm) dating from the mid 1960s, containing a well worked red biro portrait of ¿Jason Bratby nearly 5 24 June 64¿ and 15 pages of very rough sketches; an A4 envelope entitled ¿Precious Pomes¿ contains 8 pages of Bratby¿s largely erotic poems to Patti written on a variety of papers including 2 on his sunflower paper. Bratby's photographs which were taken between 1960 and 1992 were used to decorate their home, and depict Patti in various states of undress together with a large number documenting Bratby's earlier work and homelife in the 1960s during his marriage to Jean Cooke who appears frequently.
