Here's other examples of Barcodes been well and truly done before in the early 90s, both from the UK and from the good ol' USA, Mr Lubars's home territory. They are from a great book called 'A Smile in the Mind' by Beryl McAlhone and David Stuart. It has a forward by Edward De Bono. It's by Phaidon. According to the copy next to them, they were all used as real barcodes. Jeez, all the Cannes Titanium jury had to do was Google 'Barcode designs' and they would have discovered the Japanese were more than a decade behind the UK, USA and Germany.
