On his expertly curated site eyseaposters.com, James Dyer has amassed an impressive array of Polish film and political posters by the likes of Wiktor Gorka, Waldemar Swierzy, Andrzej Krajewski, Franciszek Starowieyski, and Jerzy Flisak. From the 1950s to the 1980s, the Polish School of Posters employed sophisticated graphics, strong typography, an often painterly aesthetic, and metaphor to create printed matter. Though regulated by the government, the posters remain some of the strongest examples of visual communication. Dyer lets us in on how his obsession turned into a thriving webshop.
