Just like our own dear Queen
‘White Obama’ poster conjures up the spirit of Colors on voting day
Coming into town on a damp Tuesday morning, it was cheering to see a graphic design splash
on the front page of free newspaper Metro. Reminded us of our own dear Queen, as envisaged by Colors.
Queen Elizabeth II, from Colors no. 4, ‘Race’, Spring 1993 (editor: Tibor Kalman).
Metro, 4 November 2008. The caption refers to a ‘poster being put up in Manhattan’. There’s no credit to the designers, so it would be good to learn who did this (see below).
