Mac gave us the theme of posters. I don't often take a picture of a poster and had to think hard of what I might do. I thought of gathering the tools of poster making from my high school art class. Boy were they different from what one uses now.

Scissors, compass, rubber cement, (do they make it any more or was it too sniffable?) special ruler, construction paper, india ink and calligraphic pens and brushes...

Compared to today's computer generated posters it was quite primitive, but the results were pretty amazing at that.

I thought to what posters I might have in my picture files and remembered movie posters. Where had I taken a movie poster?


I had to go to Imbd to see what Mel Gibson was starring in in 1998 when this was taken in Novosibirsk, Siberia, Russia.  It was "Ransom". I am not sure what the other posters are, but notice for the first time those flyers with the tabs to break off to call someone about what they are selling or renting.

Thanks for the fun my other headbanger friends share each week. Their links are in my sidebar.

Love the header! I have not seen and "tear tags" in a while, they must have gone to Facebook or other methods.

And the poster on the right: that must be a Naked Gun one?
