Not like I left for a sec… the usual. Having said that, and profusely apologized in seven words for having been busy all summer with this show, a book with Gingko Press (more later) and the FTC book: I figured that a good way to get the blog rolling again would be to resurrect this old feature I used to do about under-the-radar board companies that bare amazing, often not-seen-enough graphics. And boy, is Dominique Baconnier’s imprint Holenite/Boom-Art the epitome of that.
At the respectable age of (undisclosed), Dominique is the proud owner of a death cement bowl since 1977 in his backyard in the outskirts of Aix-en-Provence (France), that is sometimes skated all night long -hence the company’s name. Sensible to the finest arts in life, I was curious to see what he’d come up with when he started this limited edition board project. He didn’t disappoint, calling on to the likes of underground 60s cartoonists, “Lui” erotic magazines of the ’70s, and even XVIth Century’s HNIC Hieronymus Bosh !
Please check it here, and even better: order a box set from Boom-Art!
