Flavio Costantini (1926 – 2013) ‘The Art of Anarchy’
Flavio Costantini was born in Rome, Italy, in 1926. He served in the Italian Navy before becoming a commercial graphic artist in 1955. He has illustrated several books including The Art of Anarchy (1974), The Shadow Line (1989) and Letters from the Underworld (1997).
More often than not it is the artist, writer or poet, rather than the historian or sociologist, who succeed in capturing the spirit of an age; in so doing, they make an important contribution to our understanding of society. Flavio Costantini is such a person. He sadly passed away on 20th May 2013.

Bog people of Northern Europe 3
Braided with a flourish, the hair on Osterby Man, a body dug from a bog in northern Germany, is wound in an Iron Age style called a Swabian knot. Tacitus, a Roman historian, wrote that free men belonging to a group called the Suevians wore their hair like this and that young warriors from other Germanic tribes copied the style. “They thus dress when proceeding to war,” wrote Tacitus, “and deck their heads so as to add to their height and terror in the eyes of the enemy.”
