094987_pop

The V&A’s Cold War Modern exhibition doesn’t start for a while yet, but already we are excited by the accompanying merchandise. Available to pre-order is a small selection of posters, my favourite being this “Victory at the Bay of Pigs” poster.

Printed especially for this exhibition, the poster was originally commissioned in 1971 by Instituto Cubano del Arte e Industrias Cinematográfico to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the victory. It was designed by Cuban born Niko Antonio Pérez, who is famous for his political posters during the 60s and 70s.

The A2 sized poster costs £16 and will be delivered in September. Visit the V&A shop to order now.
