This poster was made to advertise a Smithsonian Institute exhibit on postal art. Since the exhibit features correspondence from multiple demographics in various countries, I incorporated different styles and subject matter into the poster itself. The content ranges from queer subject matter to political statements on South Africa and the USSR. Other components are seemingly random, such as a sock, poorly-drawn animals and paint color chips. The layout of the type was inspired by both the handwritten type on the letters and Japanese-style posters that have type bordering the actual content.
