France, 68

These are a series of posters created during the May 68 protests in Paris, catalogued in a new book. They are so simple and powerful, and I think they translate a message on a universal level. I studied French for 6 years so maybe I feel a deeper connection to these posters for that reason, but they have a Saul Bass-esque quality that makes me love them. The muted tones of these posters are striking along with the hand cut quality of the lines.
