Exploding cannon fire lit the sky and reflected off the water as rain poured down on American soldiers struggling to defend Fort McHenry against a British attack. It was September 1814, and after the Battle of Baltimore, Francis Scott Key penned the work that became our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner. " The goal of Annapolis-based artist Greg Harlin has been bringing that scene to life - on a postage stamp. This past weekend, as Baltimore celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore, the U.S. Postal Service unveiled Harlin's creation: the War of 1812: Fort McHenry Forever stamp.

Swiss design, which came to be known as International Typographic Style, was characterized by a clarity achieved through the use of such design elements as sans serif type and a grid system of organization. Sixty examples of this style are on view at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County's Kuhn Gallery in the show "Word and Image: Swiss Poster Design 1955-1997," and it includes work by Armin Hofmann, Wolfgang Weingart, Carl B. Graf, Werner Jeker, Peter Moser and Max Bill, among others.
