Content and Structure

Scope and content

This poster advertised a 10th anniversary exhibition of the work of printmaking organisation Editions Alecto, who specialise in printing original editions of artists work. The event took place in The Glasgow School Of Art's Mackintosh Museum as part of The Glasgow School Of Art's annual activities week. During this week, posters advertising events were designed by staff and students and were displayed on large billboards on Renfrew Street. Many of these posters can now be found in The Glasgow School Of Art's poster collection. An image of this particular poster can be found in the school's 1972/73 prospectus catalogue on page 19.
