Re: [-empyre-] Off-topic: Poster Art
You might want to take a look at the poster shop at
http://www.labellepoque.de/maindxe.htm. Some amazing Art Nouveau stuff!
What makes posters different from most drawings and paintings? I believe
it is, amongst other things, that they have a clearer, less ambiguous
message, and they use simple shapes that we all relate quite strongly
to. There is an intent behind the image/lay-out to make people
understand something, rather than to encourage them/us to think or feel
or imagine or get upset or whatever.

Sorry if it's considered off-topic, but I would like to invite you to
know my virtual gallery of poster arts. I would like also to talk with those
who like all kind of poster arts, because it is a form of art that many
people like (and they don't know) ;-).
Posters work good as propaganda and as art too. And I would like to know
and discuss why posters have this power.

"... and many a time I have made a comparison between nobility of sacrifice and happiness of rebellion to find out which one is nobler and more beautiful; but until now I have distilled only one truth out of the whole matter, and this truth is sincerity, which makes all our deeds beautiful and honorable."
