Flippers & Flappers



SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , , ,


This was designed as a promotional poster for the Wild Rumpus Winter Circus in February, 2020, with a 1920’s theme. (See more about the design process for this poster in this post.) Most of the type used in this poster was designed in or before the 1920’s, and the bob-haired acrobat doing a flip off the word “flippers” was inspired by a trapeze artist on a 1920’s circus poster from the Al G. Barnes Circus. Letterpress printed by hand on 9″x12″ heavyweight cotton card stock in three colors.
