Hope: A Collection of Obama Posters and Prints

The book, Hope: A Collection of Obama Posters and Prints by Hal Elliot Wert is now available for preorder.

Hal helped to sponsor the Obama art show in Chicago that Ray Noland organized along with some other folks like Scott Thomas (Scott was the creative director for the graphics work for the Obama Campaign).

Hal also is organizing a traveling Obama poster exhibit with the Mid-America Arts Alliance.

My "2044: Hope" piece will be in this book.

More about the book from the publisher:

"This book offers a striking and comprehensive visual chronology of posters created for Obama's run for the presidency. Most have been seen only by a limited number of viewers in the primary states. Others have rarely been seen outside the urban core or the art gallery world. An exception is the Shepard Fairey poster Hope that has been seen by millions as has his design for the cover of Time magazines Man-of-the-Year edition. Importantly, there has been nothing like this outpouring of quality prints and posters in past campaigns. The interior of the dust jacket folds out into a full-color reproduction of David Choe's "Hope" poster."
