Bombing for peace… redux.


I designed this poster in 2005, as one of 24 individuals invited to contribute to Lest We Forget: Canadian Designers on War, an exhibit at the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton, Alberta.

Today, in the lead-up to what appears likely to be another U.S.-led bombing campaign (on Syrians this time), I thought it appropriate to “unroll the poster” once again. The above poster (click on the image for a larger version) is “copyfree” so please use, share, or disseminate it however you wish…
