    Andy Warhol’s first exhibition outside the US was at Stockholm’s Moderna Museet (Museum of Modern Art). John Melin produced much of the museum’s collateral in the 1960s. This series (still reproduced and sold by the Moderna Museet) has been mimicked by other commercial entities in new posters featuring Warhol’s and other quotes. Sometimes they get it right and use Falstaff, but often it is Poster Bodoni or some other more readily available font.
