Poster designed by Ken Briggs and Associates, 1970
Whilst taking on the tiresome challenge of christmas shopping this year, I was lucky enough to come across the National Theater's online poster shop which I think deserves a big mention here. Apart from the boring part of actually raising money and selling posters the website offers a great glimpse into the visual changes that have taken place over the years at the NT.
I remember Simon Esterson's review of Ken Briggs’s National Theatre programmes in Eye 58 and was very pleased to see that his posters were also available to buy. Perhaps a little predictably, I can't help but feel that the 60's and 70's posters are the highlights here - happy shopping.
