Kosher Symbols [1–148]

Kosher Symbols [1–148] is a printed catalog and formal exploration of collected kosher certification symbols from around the world. Kosher symbols arose as a direct result of the industrialization of food production in the early twentieth century. This new reality created a need for independent organizations to oversee the food production process to ensure that kosher dietary laws were observed in a factory setting. Thus gave rise to hundreds and then thousands of graphic icons that, when placed on food packaging, indicate the approval and supervision of a specific kosher certification agency. Taken individually, these symbols can seem arbitrary or mundane; yet when viewed as a collection, themes begin to emerge that reflect a collective consciousness about how Jewish designers have chosen to formally represent the values of their culture. Limited edition shirts were printed in association with the catalog release.
