Political posters from the 1900's.
Have you ever seen a political poster from the beginning of the 1900's? It is just text. Posters with pictures did not show up until around year 1920, and was from the beginning mostly used by the labor movement. When text and pictures started to combine, there where suddenly new opportunities but also new challenges.
There is an importance in combining posters with text and context. A challenge is that it can be hard to get the right message out to the community through the poster and it is therefore important to make the statements very general.
