The 2008 Campaign, In Posters

Roughly a year after President Obama defeated John McCain, the visual elements of his victory will be rehashed: in October 2009, the same month that Shepard Fairey is scheduled to release his book Art for Obama: Designing the Campaign for Change, Kansas City Art Institute professor Hal Elliott Wert will release a chronicle of Obama campaign posters entitled Hope: A Collection of Obama Posters and Prints. Wert's book will include a replication of Fairey's "Hope" poster.
