I was walking down the street photographing the amazing (and still growing) number of empty storefronts in Lincoln Park and was surprised to see the old Barnes and Noble building (a block west of the current Borders location at Clark and Diversey) spruced up. I walked in and found out that the IDSA is showing some posters from the judges of its biennial international poster show. I got a few photos - four of these are by Emek, who apparently does his own printing. The rich hues he’s achieved are unlike anything I’ve seen mass-produced before. Hurry - It closes June 11th.
