You know, they're not really that expensive, either. A few that I really like are under $100.

Thanks, growabrain! I don't like circuses both in practice and principle, but I love circus posters with tigers: my childhood nickname was Tiger, and there was a ferocious Ringling Brothers tiger poster on the playroom wall growing up. Meanwhile, up in the study, my parents had "Cyrk; tygrys na kuli (Tiger on Ball)", which was never my aesthetic favorite, but it brings back fond memories. The combination of 1960s pop art with the Polish word for Circus was very cool. "Cyrk; tygrys z plonaca obrecza (Tiger in Flaming Ring" is my favorite of the bunch.

It's worth mentioning, for those interested, that we've had many other threads on Polish Posters. The Chinese propaganda poster that Timothy Mason links in his comment is really quite good, though. I've not seen it before, and if it's truly never graced the blue in the past, it's worthy of a front page post.
