The London Underground is home to some of the most interesting, weird
and fun adverts, which have been tailored to the fact that they have huge posters that passengers are often looking at for minutes at a time while waiting. In Copywriting goes Underground, they challenged ad agencies to write an ad which had at least 50 words in it. Some are crap, but some are pretty innovative - check them out

Freedom on the Fence: The Polish Poster.
While we're at it: The history and culture of the Polish poster
and an analysis of American Films in Polish Posters
. Or, if you'd prefer, The Classic Polish Film Poster
database (where the Disney/Children's film posters
are quite lovely). Also, The Wallace Library
at the Rochester Institute of Technology has a fantastic searchable and browse-able database, with many hi-res images. Finally, some other Polish Poster Galleries. (What's that? You want more? You want artist-specific galleries? Okay. Here's work by Mieczyslaw Gorowski, Piotr Kunce, Wieslaw Walkuski, and Jan Sawka. Oh, you wanted Communist-era Polish propaganda posters? Fine. Here ya go.) [previous MeFi discussion on Polish film posters; also, some of the images from these links may be NSFW, depending on how S your W environment is.]

all seem to know
about Gary Panter
: set designer
and author of the JIMBO
comics. His site archives an increasing radius: see his
, for instance,
some Jimbo covers: 1,
Or his custom
, which are done based on one to three words you supply. The ink drawings:
and the sketchbooks
are nice, too: 1,
Seems like he's everywhere: writing on his blog
or that oft remembered manifesto
. And, as connective tissue, his Screamers
is one of the more well regarded punk images out there. When I think
of Panter, I also think of Raymond
(Black Flag/SST). Featured in PBS
ART 21 (check out the multi-media)
, his work graced numerous
album covers and flyers
also played an early role in his development. Mike
's own Hootpage
documents some of Ray's
art from the summer of 2003
. Known for his interplay

More pieces can

. His posters

and his logos
ain't too shabby either. Mr. Chantry has been known to debate
the rise and fall
of rock and roll graphic design
on issues of the state of graphic

A century's worth of Olympics posters
Awesome Flash-based site with over 1800 posters, official and not, from every Olympic Games, 1896-present (and even one for 2006). The retro-licious posters from the 1980 Summer Games in Moscow are particularly nice and definitely worth checking out. Also neat: posters from Games that never happened due to WWII. Great resource for looking at poster design through the years.

When Pink Bits Were Not The Norm
- The art of X-rated movie posters from the 1960s and 1970s. Considered by most to be the Golden Age of the pornographic movie, the period's rising production budgets generated a dramatic improvement in film quality and plot.

Sandman READ poster
Anyone passing through libraries will have seen the series of READ posters, starring any number of actors, sports stars, musicians, and other celebrities. Everyone from Alex Baldwin to WWF wresllers to Yoda have been so honored.
Now you can add a comic character to that list. Neil Gaiman's creation of Morpheus, the Sandman, is now available as a poster. The artwork is by P Craig Russell, who was the artist for an issue of Sandman.

Make Love Not War - Again?
The anti-war movement has all the best slogans. And quite rightly too. Which doesn't mean they're not still rehashed, unimaginative and lame. "Don't attack Iraq"? "Make tea, not war"? Don't make me laugh. What's the best you've come across, if at all? And why are the hawks so lacking in the most basic sense of humor?

You probably remember him best for his famous green devil
, tempting you with the esoteric delight of evil absinthe*
, or the familiar image of the jester pushing the pleasures of Bitter Campari
. Called by some the "father of the modern poster", and even the "father of advertising
", Italian-born Leonetto Cappiello
created over 1,000 memorable posters during his 40-year career in belle-epoque and fin-de-siecle Paris, and a quick look at a collection
of his work quickly reminds us how enduring both his images and his basic concepts have been. (more...)

Rick Griffin's famous flying eyeball poster is considered by many to be the single finest example of San Francisco psychedelic poster art. The image comes from this fabulous motherlode of eye candy that is Paul Olsen's Fillmore and Avalon poster collection
. It is the largest and most complete collection of its sort. He would like to sell it as a whole--The Whitney Museum wants to buy it but can't afford it. That should tell you something. Come step behind the Indian bedspread curtain and smell the incense.
