Horses & Boughams in Central London

Some great typography seen in Clapham, London last week. This sign on a Mews wall records the passing of horse drawn carriages and Boughams in London, and the advent of the motor car. Hay & Horses are overpainted with Cars & Motors.

Free Pussy Riot poster

The Pussy Riot two year prison sentences are described as a 'travesty of justice and democracy' by Liberation, 'over the top' Washington Post, 'a huge moral and political defeat suffered by the Russian authorities and society alike' Russian Newspaper.
'Vladimir Putin is a famously tough guy - a former KGB agent who gets photographed shirtless on horseback. But the Russian strongman is not really so strong. Evidently he's scared to death of three women who play in a punk rock band with the unforgettable name of Pussy Riot... Only corrupt dictatorial leaders have grounds to fear the complaints of their citizens... afraid of people armed with nothing but guitars and truth' Chicago Tribune.
Poster design by Berin Hasi.
