    This poster by April Greiman (and Michael Manwaring?) from 1984 [Sean Adams] or 1985 [LACMA, Made In Space, Ader Nordmann] features Greiman’s trademark aesthetics in a playful riff on Californian visual culture. It is also an early example of a poster made with the then new Macintosh, as it uses Susan Kare’s today forgotten MacOS system font Athens, a slab serif bitmap design optimized for 18pt. No official TrueType version was ever made.

    Made for the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). 6 color offset lithograph, 36.5×24 in.
