May 68: Street Posters from the Paris Rebellion

May 21, 2008
Over the past week, we passed the Paul Smith store in Soho several times. Although we were fascinated by the display of powerful, colorful, graphic posters in the window, we never had our camera with us, and it was always either too early in the morning or too late at night to stop inside to get more information. Then this morning we received an email from Keep Calm Gallery with familiar images... It turns out that Paul Smith is selling a limited edition book (68 copies!) that contains hand screen printed reproductions of 40 original posters, and Keep Calm is selling a very limited number of printers proofs of the reproductions.

The book is for sale at several Paul Smith locations.

Keep Calm's printers proofs are for sale here (the posters -- quite a few of which are already sold out -- are also translated on the site, for those of us whose French is rusty).

(See the posters exhibited at The Hayward Gallery in London through May. And read more here.)
