Lester Beall Poster: Light

In the 1930s, much of rural America lacked electricity, power, and running water. The Rural Electrification Administration hired graphic designer Lester Beall to create a series of posters illustrating the benefits of electrification. These posters are from the first of three series, created in 1937. The original posters are held in the Lester Beall Archive, at RIT Cary Graphic Arts Collection.

Perpetual Calendar of Typography from Turn of the Century Sign Painter's Models
Perpetual Calendar of Typography from Turn of the Century Sign Painter's Models
Perpetual Calendar of Typography from Turn of the Century Sign Painter's Models

Sign painting at the turn of the twentieth century was an art form that required the skill of a trained artisan, as letters played a key role in the beautification and decoration of shop exteriors. The French master sign painters, Ducompex and Fleury, issued exquisitely chromolithographed alphabet model books to serve as inspirations for their fellow tradesmen. This perpetual calendar reproduces a selection of their alphabet plates in mix-and-match fashion.
