The Victory Garden of Tomorrow

Have you seen the Victory Garden of Tomorrow project? It’s the inspiring work of Joe Wirtheim, a graphic artist in Portland, Oregon who started working on a series of agit-prop posters in 2007 aimed at promoting community gardens and environmental issues.  While drawing on the design sensibilities of the mid-20th century – specifically WW2 propaganda posters and World’s Fair materials – he has created something that beautifully combines the current and the historical.
His work is available on Etsy, and I’m thinking a space pickle poster is just what we need in our kitchen.  Check it out!
