On a recent visit to The Loaded Trunk, a new online boutique of home goods collected the world over, these three types of imported vintage graphics caught my eye...
• 1, 2 reproductions of Vietnamese propaganda posters on rice paper
• 3 an ex-voto, or votive offering. "Often left at church alters in Mexico, these tell very touching personal stories, which is what makes them so compelling. The most common reason for giving thanks is health, where many dedicate ex-votos after a surviving an operation or an accident..."
• 4 an original vintage Mexican movie poster
• 5 an arrangement of more graphics and artwork
