Mihailo S. Petrov [Michael S Peter or Mihaila S. Petrova or михаило с петров] (1902 – 1983) was a Serbian graphic artist, painter, illustrator, poet and critic, professor, book and poster designer and typographer.

Petrov was a leading graphic protagonist of the Yugoslav anti-war, anti-bourgeois and anti-nationalist Avant-Garde movement known as Zenitism, that flourished in the 1920s.

"The international review of new art and culture Zenit (1921-1926) enjoyed a reputation in the world as the only Yugoslav Avant-Garde journal, which was included in the international Avant-Garde scene at the beginning of the 1920s. Zenit was launched by Avant-Garde artist Ljubomir Micic in February 1921 in Zagreb."

Some time ago I discovered your blog and found some familiaritats with what I intend to do with me: one dealing with the issues fairly graphic, in my case maps and other information sources, mixing and presenting a careful and amazing product. Above that is original, almost fantastic, calm and treated with solvent. I think it's important (blogs can inform and make known a lot of wisdom and science both). There are points of connection between blogging and the issues that I propose: maps (real or invented worlds, no matter) to remember the story and make it intelligible and easy, strange worlds, and a whole series circumstances and issues to be explained by his amazing story. Although my blog is written in Catalan, you can translate it if you know a little of my world. Congratulations and good luck.

When I saw these, I was reminded of my childhood.
Then I saw that, yes, the title was in Serbian and, yes, the author was Serbian; what do you know :D .
