I got some new posters and postcards for the store that are so cool I want to share them with you. Created by Joe Wirtheim whose Victory Garden of Tomorrow poster campaign is committed to "civic innovation and social progress--better food, better gardens, better cities." During World Wars I and II there were Victory Garden campaigns encouraging citizens to grow food to augment rations. There's an essay about American Victory Gardens on Joe's website.
This poster by Joe is inspired by a 1944 Garden for Victory poster.
This is an original Victory Garden poster.
Here are some more of Joe's posters:
They are available in his Etsy store along with postcards and t-shirts. With a packet of postcards you get free tattoos and stickers.
I have a (temporary, alas) tattoo of this chicken on the inside of my forearm. I'm quite fond of it. There are an abundance of organic gardeners in the Catskills, so I think these are a good fit for my store. Many of my customers are artists and designers who will appreciate the great graphics as well as the inspiration.
