The genius behind this particular show poster, is in the simplicity of it all. It's just a two-color (white and blue) design, and all the pertinent info is included. And, from an image standpoint, it's simple, too, what with its pair of Civil War images, torn appropriately down the middle to represent the strife. Yes, that's Abraham Lincoln on the right. And on the left? Not sure, actually. It's not Robert E. Lee, we don't think. Is it Ulysses S. Grant? Stonewall Jackson? Someone in the Union, we assume, given the dark uniform. But we can't really figure it out. Spent a whole half an hour just searching Google Images to do so, but to no avail. Oh well. If you know who it is, let us know in the comments.
But, really, the "who" really doesn't matter. Fact is, the point is already well hammered home by the time you get around to figuring that much out.
And, for that, this poster's our weekly winner.
