Vintage Posters

While going through the University Gallery files from the early 1950s, we found many small posters (7"x11") for the exhibitions, no doubt to post around campus. These posters are one-color prints (sometimes on a colorful paper stock) with no images, but with some simple graphic flourishes--they are very charming in their simplicity. I can definitely see echos of this kind of straightforward design in today's graphic design trends. We thought we'd share a few of these gems!
