The return of Dr. Caligari

October 21, 2007

The first thought that came to my head when I saw the photos of the Film & Visual Media Research Center at the University of London’s Birkbeck College is that someone was crazy enough to color a copy of the cardboard decoration from my favorite horror movie The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, a 1921 silent […]

New graphic design and another blog
