Leap Into the New poster

The central image of this poster comes from Jumpers (Serigraph, 1970). Several of John’s early serigraphs used photographs, his own, and in this case, the famous Muybridge photographs, which John adapted with photo developing techniques and lettering.

The words in the central arc of the image (a quote from John’s early mentor, Corita Kent) appeared in the original serigraph. For this 2015 poster, he added the hand-drawn text at the top and bottom, respectively from a poem by Antonio Machado and from an interview he heard on the radio, with a protestor at the 2014 UN Climate Change Summit in Lima, Peru.
