New posters for my library

Just bought some posters off eBay for my new retro library. They're cuban movie posters and just about the only retro looking posters I could find anywhere that weren't rock band related.

And, while I type this, there are 4 guys in my backyard building my deck and fence. FINALLY!!! I'll post some pics eventually, once I get the landscaping done.

Love the posters.

Are the guys actually working in the rain?

Oh and when the backyard is done you'll have to have another bbq (and maybe more lobster flown in?!?!?!?!?!?!?!...I LOVE Jeff's folks).

I love the "Responde" poster, such beautiful colours and styling. I've never even thought of looking for posters on ebay... tho I have quite a lot of work ahead on my house before I get to the more fun jobs of picking art.

Thanks, your site inspires every time I visit (that'll be daily, then.)

Julia, they were (waiting for the ZAP of one of them getting electrocuted), but they took off for lunch. And yes, another BBQ, but we'll see about the fresh lobster. Don't want to push my luck with the inlaws.

Anon - too bad, cause picking furniture/art is the best part! Happy to hear you're a regular here.

very fun colors and designs. Very retro. I need to look on ebay for stuff for my house. I need some inspiration pieces!

Thanks y'all. FYI: lots of these posters still on eBay. Seller is cubandesigns.

I love these posters. They remind me of some pieces I found in an old art poster book a few months back. They were all retro and trippy. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the book, but I do still have a few pics from my final project.

love these! polish movie posters are also always great!

frances - i especially love the african posters you posted about! someone had emailed me a link to polish posters but i have to say the cuban ones are a bit more retro, so more my style.
