Swiss artist Frédéric Post has published a book that details 512 etched logos and images that he’s found on ecstasy tablets. An extract of the book says:

“You have spread out my logos on the carpet, how impressive ! I say “my” logos, but I didn’t design them, I just hunted around for them, collected and copied them. They were made anonymously, and through this compilation, this collection, I became their godparent. I am fascinated by these drawings that have been abandoned by their authors. Usually artists sign their works and safeguard them, but in this case their creations have been parachuted into the jungle, without a radio… The authors and consumers re-appropriate the elements of their daily lives, they digest the landscape and define their identities by means of imposed elements. At this moment you should hear Bruce Lee whispering : ‘If you’re afraid of the wind, then be the wiiiiiiind’.”
