Crescent Arts looks back affectionately at two years of news posters from Scarborough News. Karen Thompson has collected most of the daily posters which give a vivid snapshot of events and news in Scarborough over this period. The best news posters capture the stories with a striking economy of language, and are meant to be digested in a split second. At their best, they have strong typographic appeal and are highly evocative. A sense of the visual, which parallels the photographic, makes for the most memorable posters. Who could ever forget âElton John to Walk On Water In Scarboro!'?
