The Art of Politics

I believe the most powerful way to observe culture is to look beyond just what is happening today and look instead at how it differs (or doesn’t) from what was done in the past. When it comes to political posters there are very few unique messages and sadly not many unique styles either.

Although not all of these were official campaign posters, some took on that role because they became voter favorites.

I’ve attached a few posters here. For more, my Political Posters and Pins Pinterest board is a fun walk through politics of the past.

One of the few posters that captured the visual ethos of the era.
We don’t don’t see many candidates campaign on peace these days. Though, that isn’t the image that stuck to Nixon.
