Paradoy of Cassandre Poster Grand Sport in Dutch Called Knakworst

Knakworst

A few days ago I bought an auction catalogue of rare posters. One of the graphic designers that really impressed me was A.M. Cassandre (1901-1968).  His designs are beautiful in their simplicity. I wanted to try if could copy his style. So I made a parody on one of his posters. It is a bit corny but for me it was just practice.

The text in Dutch is: Knakworst “frankfurter sausage”, eaten by everyone in the Netherlands. With a woolen hat/knit cap that is made famous by a big Dutch sausage brand.
