Poster News

Careful readers of the Vintage Poster Blog [Shipwreckers, see link at bottom] might recall a post I wrote about Assam Attia and his NYPD satire posters over year ago. For those who missed it the first time around, a quick recap: Mr. Attia made & distributed these pointed blue posters around NYC, which as first glance looked a lot like official NYPD advertising. For his troubles, he was arrested and charged with, among other things, 56 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Well, good news for poster lovers, street artists, and free speech enthusiasts — Attia had all charges dismissed earlier this month. He said, “The assistant district attorney, I guess, had bigger fish to fry.”
