  • A sailor (?) in local folk attire in picturesque island community of Marken in Holland (Netherlands). Image scanned in from color photo slide that I took on 23 March 1966. 
  • Soot covered chimney sweep (schornsteinfeger) between jobs on a city street in Tübingen in southwest Germany in 1965. 
  • A pair of "travelling carpenters" (journeymen, or Wandergeselle in German) on a city street in Tübingen in southwest Germany in 1966. They are seen here in traditional dress of black waistcoats, black flared trousers, black hats and white shirts. Often they are seen carrying twisted or gnarled pieces of wood, with their possessions wrapped in fabric tied to the end, suggesting an image of a wizard to some people.

    Attached to a zunft or guild, they may be found in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. While completing a 1-2 year apprenticeship, they are not permitted to come closer than about 50 kilometers to their hometown or village. Gypsy-like they go from town to town, seeking odd jobs in exchange for overnight accomodations or a bite to eat.

  • 1 +++ Project_Suit_yourself +++

    Short one week project

    In the past people could be distinguished in the street by their professional outfit. These outfits had both a utilitarian as well as a social signifying function.
    These days few signals identify a person's profession. It's easier to guess someone's sport's interest rather than seeing from his/her hands what tools s/he operates. Would it be desirable to identify people's professional and not just cultural or sports interest? And if what would it be like?

    This projects rapidly identifies utilitarian requirements and social signals, including guilds, casts, production and service processes, materials (both physical and virtual) tools, communication requirements etc

    Outcome:
    Collective: map and index requirements and objectives of our current work cultures.
    Individual: Design (assemble) an outfit for yourself that signifies your current or future profession.

    Present: 30 seconds "fashion" show dressed in your own outfit and discuss.

    Next Step: collectively discuss, evaluate and create framework for future work development

    Key words:
    cultural tribes
    Work cultures

  • Les costumes grotesques
    Nicolas de Larmessin II (ca. 1638-1694), Habit d’Imprimeur en Lettres (The Printer’s Costume), ca. 1680. Engraving. Graphic Arts GA 2007.04409.

    This copper plate engraving is from Les costumes grotesques et les metiers or the Fancy Trade Costumes series. In the series, over 70 artisans are dressed in the materials of their occupation, in this case the tools of a printer.
    Nicolas de Larmessin II is one member of a family of printmakers and booksellers, many with the same name, leading to much confusion in attributing their work. The family had their own publishing house in Paris, where they designed and printed books, prints, calendars, and other popular works on paper.
    To see more of Larmessin’s work, look at: Les avgvstes representations de tovs les roys de France depvis Pharamond ivsqv’a Lovys XIIII: dit Le Grand, a present regnant, 1679: auec vn abrège historique sous chacun, contenant leurs naissances, inclinations et actions plus remarquables pendant leurs regnes (Paris: Bertrand, 1679). Engraved portraits of the Kings of France. Graphic Arts Collection (GAX) Oversize 2008-0170Q
  • Costumes Grotesques
    There follows a selection of images from a series entitled Les Costumes Grotesques: Habits des métiers et professions…
    They were published in 1695 by one Nicolas de Larmessin, although I’m not exactly sure which Nicolas was responsible for them, as there seem to have been four generations of Nicolases in the de Larmessin family.
    Although Nicolas II (d. ca. 1694) or III (d. ca. 1725) would seem the likeliest suspects.
    These light-hearted images seem to carry just a faint aftertaste of Arcimboldo’s grotesques.
    Unusually for a series of late 17th century prints, they seem to be widely-available in poster form. I lifted the present images from the allposters site.
