January – June 1918

The late 19th century marked the beginning of one of the greatest explosions of culture in modern times. Two forces were colliding- modern industrial technology, and a revolution in hand made arts and crafts. At first, these two things seem to be mutually exclusive, but they came together perfectly in a Geman magazine called Jugend. Titled after the German word for “youth”, Jugend was at the forefront of the arts and crafts movement. In fact, in Germany, art nouveau came to be known as “jugend-stil” (Jugend style). Utilizing state of the art color printing techniques to reproduce hand drawn lettering and beautiful sketches and paintings, Jugend set a standard in graphic design that continues to be felt to this day.

This PDF e-book contains all of the major illustrations from the first six issues published in 1918, and includes an introduction by Stephen Worth. This PDF e-book is optimized for display on the iPad or printing two up with a cover on 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper.

First Motion Picture Unit (ca. 1945)

The Army-Navy Screen Magazine was a series of short subjects shown to military personel during World War II. The films preceded the screening of a Hollywood feature and served several purposes… First of all, it shared news of home with GIs on the front lines, secondly it provided information about the progress of the war effort, and lastly it trained servicemen in an entertaining manner.

Under the supervision of director Frank Capra, the series included animated cartoons featuring Private Snafu produced by Warner Bros, as well as training films with animation by UPA, MGM, Disney and Harman Ising. This particular installment of the Army-Navy Screen Magazine features brilliant design by John Hubley, and probably was made shortly before he left the service to join UPA.

First Motion Picture Unit (ca. mid 1944)

Paul Fennell was a master of using animation for communication and education, and at the First Motion Picture Unit he had the opportunity to experiment with new ways of conveying information. This rare film from 1944 explains strategies for naval warfare at night, using the battle at Empress Augusta Bay in November 1943 as an example. The U.S. was seeking to establish a beachhead at the very outer edge of the range of their fighter planes, so they could build an airstrip to act as a base to extend their reach.

Using a blend of cel animation, stop motion and diagrammatic animatics, the artists of the First Motion Picture Unit explain some pretty complex strategic maneuvers. But it never becomes a purely technical exercise, because the animation of the night battle, revealed as brief flashes of light from gun blasts, is both cinematically and graphically exciting. This film must have been produced very quickly in the first few months of 1944. Time was of the essence to pass along the concepts learned from this naval battle to other servicemen serving in the War of the Pacific.

Films like this are rarely seen today, except in bits and pieces as stock footage in TV documentaries. This intact print, labelled “Confidential Report on the Battle of Empress Augusta Bay” comes from the collection of Paul Fennell’s family. We thank them for sharing it with us.
