I’ve been reading Jason Kottke’s blog for as long as I can remember. Sometimes his posts resonate, sometimes I just skim on by. His post about John Lennon’s Poster resonated.
Peter Dean is a big Beatles fan. And so he set out to reproduce exactly — from photographic evidence only — an old circus poster owned by John Lennon. In true Sgt. Pepper‘s fashion, he had a little help from his friends.

The video that was in the post demanded a share…
For a very long time, I worked with an in-house graphics shop that printed with steel type on “sho-card”. Watching the video brought back many memories of trying to duplicate something for a client that had been originally printed somewhere else with a different process….Not always fun.
