Hopefully ebay links don't annoy people too much. Not sure i'm familiar with this one though.

...one size fits all.

All lower-case AG Bold for Stockhausen perhaps, but surely not Beethoven's 9th?!

I actually don't think that this poster is very good. I would not invest that sort of money in it. Josef Müller-Brockmann has posters that I find much better, from a design point of view.

James, how did you find LCC? I spent some time there on the Typo BA. The german tutor Peter and Tim from Bark were good.

Am I the only one who finds these designs cold and dead? They make me shiver. Tschichold in his modernist phase did stuff so much better...

Ok, most of these are not so frightening. Still, I find odd and unattractive the way he usually puts titles in the lower half, all small type, and crowds the edge of the page. 'I'deology vs the 'Eye'.
