Ich&Kar’s Diary at Momo’s, 80x Posters

Ich&Kar’s Diary at Momo’s, 80x Posters (Pyramid, €35) tells how Paris-based Héléna Ichbiah and Piotr Karczewski met restaurateur Mourad Mazouz. When the latter wanted flyers for the Kemia Bar below his restaurant (Momo’s), Ich&Kar rejected this ‘studenty job’ and persuaded him to mail out a monthly poster instead. Each calendar (printed in France) leaves space for the designers to comment on anything from the weather to French politics, sometimes doubling up work for other clients. With a single change of plate November 2004 (right) became a Don Juan theatre poster for a ‘penniless friend’. JLW
