Fun Retro Posters
















































I've stumbled across these posters and thought they were well worth sharing with you. These are all public safety and health posters that were part of FDR's WPA (Works Progress Administration) started to help give work to unemployed artists as well as getting "important" messages like these out to the public - some of the posters from this era are really great. There is a whole line of travel posters highlighting the different states and national parks. If you have a few minutes to spare sometime just look up "WPA posters" you'll love what you find - there are even sites that sell remakes of these old posters, I think some could be really fun decoration.
