surf-a-gogo: Lennon's Poster
Lennon's Poster: This short film by Nick Esdaile & Joe Fellows appeals to both the Beatles nerd and graphic design geek in me. The film follows the recreation from scratch of the Pablo Fanque circus poster that inspired John Lennon to write "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite". With meticulous attention to detail they were able to rebuild the poster using traditional wood engraving and letterpress printing techniques.
