This colorful print is the perfect piece of home decor—no matter where in the world one’s home might be—complete with big wood type and rules, and an equally big impact from the early twentieth century outline typeface used to communicate the reminder to “Think Globally, Act Locally.”
The poster is as bright as it is transparent about what it’s saying, which in this letterpress print shop also means that transparent ink tinted with primary colors was printed in layers atop each other to generate even more colors.
The message of the poster, much like the type used to communicate it, is timeless. Work hard. Be kind. Your word is as good as your deed. Reduce, reuse, recycle. Stop and smell the . . . magnolias. Some truths are universal, and as we continue to learn and know more about one another, around the planet, we can reap the rewards of being exposed to ever more ideas, solutions, or practices that might help resolve what happens in our own backyard.
