Poster

Poster for "Horse Opera" by Leonard Melfi, music by John Braden, and produced at La MaMa in 1974. The font on poster recalls typography of circus, carnival and Wild West posters. The poster was letterpress printed in multiple colors - in this example a red ink was applied to the plate and printed on yellow paper, creating the orange color seen here.
