Loved this post! Thanks potota, the museum is really great too.
Those posters are cool in retrospect, but by modern standards they're way too creepy for my tastes.
I am such a fan of vintage design, i love the bold use of colours and Victorian fonts, its great to see we are reverting back to this style of advertising, make us remember the good times of design and the economy before the credit crunch!,
