The National Poster Retrospecticus Tour 2013

Posted by on Apr 29, 2013 in Design, Illustration

The National Poster Retrospecticus is a traveling show of more than 300 hand-printed event posters from over 75 of the best poster designers in the country. Produced and Curated by JP Boneyard.” All posters included in the show satisfy two simple requirements; they’ve been printed by hand and celebrate a single moment in time. This year’s tour hit 7 cities; Burlington, Rochester, Detroit, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Richmond and Boston. A different artist is featured for each event with their own unique show poster consistent with the NPR palette of green, blue, orange and black (printed by The Half and Half on French Paper). They were selling at events for $20, but more may be available directly through JP (email john at jpboneyard dot com). I’d love to get my hands on Doe Eyed’s St. Louis poster, that sea monster/eyeball motif is SICK. Here’s to hoping they venture out to Austin next spring! Be sure to check out their gallery selections from 2012 to get a feel for the rest of the show. Below are the featured artist posters (via OMG Posters).
