For this 250th poster design blog we’ve chosen a subject having been part of a recently reasserted lifestyle, namely, working with their hands, especially farming. This is a change of pace for us (and why not, on a special occasion) for a metier infatuated with the chic and the trendy.

But, on the other hand, we must add that the lively center of vintage lithographic poster production had, from its inception with not terribly academic figures like Toulouse-Lautrec, been–over and above turning a buck–very pleased to catch the public’s eye with products and services rendered as hallmarks of history getting less and less ascetic and stodgy. The step needed now is to convey the fact that seemingly hard-core conventional rural life carries a premium on the earthy which has a secret energy seldom articulated and carried to regions of discernment amazingly coinciding with the precious Parisiennes tearing things up in composition and chromatic pop in vintage poster art.

Our first vintage poster illustration of the matter of working with one’s whole body shows a composite of outdoor-workers alert to the higher things!

Should she be improving her mind? She is!

Is this a portrayal of exploitation? Could be. But her body language reveals that she has an antidote of formidable power. Golden-Age vintage posters revel in the ironies of a fast-changing world!

Gaining in necessary mystery, thanks to compositional and chromatic mobilization–mobilization you don’t need a college degree to master.

Another compositional coup, at a moment of vision!

Wide-open spaces can bring their own wisdom.
