Now comes a new spoof for the icon-icon generation as everyone's favourite revolutionary takes on the face of smiley culture. Sadly, the telltale beret has dissolved into it's own silloette and I suspect that most of those buying this particular t-shirt will probably have little clue as to the origin of what they are wearing.

This kind of thing is normally in my Art Blog (see the links listing) but I stumbled across this collection in Flickr which limits my posting choices.
The actual collection features a wealth of scans from printed publications and the pictures appear in their typographical context. Most are of an era, but the astonishing realism of the art puts them in a timeless category of their own.
