It’s great to see that people involved in political poster making groups in the 1960s and 1970s and slowly starting to digitize their archives and get them up on-line. The Poster Workshop, based in Camden, London and started in 1968, has recently just done that. It is clear that they were inspired by the Atelier Populaires in France during May 68, as almost all of the posters are bold and simple like the French designs, if a bit less consistent in design and illustration skills. The Poster Workshop was an open platform for lots of groups to come and print their political posters, like a walk-in participatory screen print shop. Anyway, you can read more about on their archive site HERE. And there are more examples of posters below…
