Finding a Show Before the Web: The Globe Poster

Baltimore City Paper : Letter Men. is a wonderful article describing a look at how entertainment and other marketing used to be distributed by posters and banners before the era of the “banner ad”.

Chris Landers writes lovingly of the remnants of a family owned Baltimore press that became a national institution and veritable museum of 80 years of printing technology, popular entertainment trends and graphic design standards.

Be sure to look a the photo tours and poster gallery as well. Well worth it for nostaligia, education amd even for budding graphic designers…
