Poster Tribune, Issue 3
Posters are equally artistic creations, communication tools and witnesses to social, commercial and artistic trends from specific periods. Poster Tribune examines and breathes new life into these short-lived street exhibitions. The articles in each issue document and promote contemporary international and Swiss graphic design, reflect on poster history and report on recent exhibitions. Poster Tribune contains 12 pages of illustrated articles and 3 posters.
