      Books have finally gone out to the last of the tour's backers! Hopefully it was worth the wait. The book features over 30 pages of tour notes and photos from the trip -- the kind of stuff that can only be put together once the trip was wrapped up. I'm stoked on how they came out. Thanks again for helping The NPR hit the road y'all!

      I'm also excited to announce another pop-up show! The National Poster Retrospecticus is headed to Philadelphia on September 14th 2013! As a fun bonus featured artists and legendary type foundry House Industries will be giving a talk at this show. For more info please visit:

      Cool announcement for all of our Massachusetts area backers: The National Poster Retrospecticus will be setting up shop in Boston for a second showing -- this time at Aviary Gallery in Jamaica Plain. This show is one night only and will feature a special collection of work from local poster making champ Daniel Danger!

      Tour was an incredible experience and we met some of the nicest, most genuine people imaginable. It's because of your help that we were able to that happen so thanks again!
