Lester Beall poster reprints
0

Hello all,

I'm a big fan of Lester Beall's Rural Electrification posters from the WPA period.

Does anyone know where you can find reprints of these?

1) search for them here:

2) download

3) print!

Unfortunately, the high-res versions aren't always THAT high-res, but most are pretty good with a bit of photoshop tweaking.

Looks like they're constantly updating it with more and more posters as well...really like this one:
