Cuban propaganda posters used to be hand-painted, which has allowed artists to develop distinctive styles. The graphic designer in me is compelled to take a photo of every example I see of signs and propaganda posters. Unlike many other countries, the heroes in Cuban posters are the intellectual and idea people, not the leaders of the government. Only since Fidel Castro’s death, do you see his image on posters. Cuba is filled with posters commemorating his life this year.

This list was ripe for finding great images of the Cuban revolution. With Fidel’s death just a month before, the country was still in mourning.
