A few years ago I was in Prague and went by the retail location. I grabbed four posters from the discount bin for about 100 czk (then about $5) each. I really loved just flipping through them.

Thanks, kerf. I thought so, too.

Well I was going to spend my money on food, but I guess that’s no longer an option.

What a treasury this is: thanks MovableBookLady. I knew that communist-era Polish poster art was often very cool, so I was interested to see it mentioned here that "Film posters by Polish graphic designers and artists inspired the rise of the Czech poster school in the end of the 50’s". The site even features a specific subsection with 281 Polish Posters for Czechoslovak Movies!
