Amnesty at 50

Sunday, 3 April 2011

Today's Observer newspaper features fifty great Amnesty International posters to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the organisation. These form part of an exhibition of Amnesty posters which will be held in the Guardian and Observer building at Kings Place, 90 York Way, London from 4 -28 April, and which is open to the public.

Many of the posters feature direct visual references to political events in the year in which they were designed, and some of them are by renowned artists, including the one shown here by Picasso. Check out the gallery.
