I am reblogging this in memory of the painter Vilis Ozols, who passed away on the 2nd of July, 2014.

RIP Vilis.

Green Bologna Posters
The area around Bologna University had lots of environmentally-oriented posters, all in monochrome. I don’t know what the story was behind them, but they were excellent, both graphically, and for the thought and/or action they might provoke.
