Inspired by how vintage encyclopedia graphics achieve the maximum visual impact with deceptively simple and minimalist layouts, artist Gene Rogovitz created his stark "info-graphic" series as an homage to these bygone books and well-known objects. This beachy print is doubly nostalgic as it also captures the excitement the artist felt when he received his first surfboard at just 7 years old. Like an artifact displayed in a museum, Rogovitz memorializes these water-bound wonders in his punchy print that is filled with facts about the surfboard's first appearance and the history of the design. With timeless graphic appeal and a slick aesthetic, this print will brighten up the home of your favorite wave chaser. Designed and printed on Long Island, New York.
