Tipografía a mano

Esta semana me ha tocado bucear en el universo de la tipografía realizada a mano.  Detrás de muchas de ellas hay gigantes ilustradores. Un mundo sin límites. Lápiz, goma y papel. ¿Vintage? ¿Retro? Lo clásico siempre será moderno.
Estas son algunas muestras que me han dejado helado.

The Boston Public Library’s Print Department is home to more than 350 vintage travel posters, most dating from the 1920s-1940s, the “Golden Age of Travel.”

Railways opened up America and Europe, luxe ocean liners introduced elegance into
overseas voyages, and drivers took to the road in record numbers in their new automobiles. By the mid-1940s, new airlines crisscrossed the globe, winging adventure-seekers to far-flung destinations.

Travel agents and ticket offices during this period were festooned with vivid, eye-catching posters, all designed to capture the beauty, excitement and adventure of travel and to promote a world of enticing destinations and new modes of transportation. Individual artists gained fame for their distinctive graphic styles and iconic imagery, and many posters from this era still remain important works of art long after their original advertising purposes have faded.

Regulation of microRNA biogenesis,
function and degradation
Jacek Krol, Inga Loedige and Witold Filipowicz

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a large family of post-transcriptional regulators of gene
expression that are ~21-nucleotides in length and control many developmental and
cellular processes in eukaryotes. The implication of miRNAs in many disease processes
also makes them important potential targets for therapy. Research during the last
decade has identified many of the components that participate in miRNA biogenesis
and has established basic principles of miRNA function1. More recently, it has become
apparent that miRNA regulators themselves are subject to sophisticated control. Many
studies over the last few years have reported the regulation of miRNA biogenesis,
function and degradation by a range of mechanisms involving numerous proteinprotein
and protein-RNA interactions2. Such regulation has an important role in the
context-specific functions of miRNAs and an understanding of this control is needed
to gain a full picture of the roles of miRNAs in development, physiology and disease.

WHY A WORLD STATISTICS DAY?

——————————————————————————–

The celebration of the World Statistics Day will acknowledge the service provided by the global statistical system at national and international level, and hope to help strengthen the awareness and trust of the public in official statistics. It serves as an advocacy tool to further support the work of statisticians across different settings, cultures, and domains.

WHAT TO EXPECT

——————————————————————————–

On World Statistics Day, activities at national level will highlight the role of official statistics and the many achievements of the national statistical system. International, regional and sub-regional organizations will complement national activities with additional events.

Working Class Hero
1970’s John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.
Released December 11, 1970
Recorded September 26 – October 9, 1970

As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
