For this project of doing a historical poster, I knew exactly what I wanted to do from the very beginning. Using Clarendon, a font from around the time of the latter half of the 19th century, I created a poster based upon the Union victory after the siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi in 1863 during the American Civil War.
I wanted to keep with the theme of the era, and looked any many different posters from the time. Which are quite simplistic in how they are formatted. Larger lines of text to show the most important ones and smaller ones to show the lesser important details.
I would have liked to have added more information to both the actual poster itself as well as the part explaining the font. However, wherever I looked, resources were limited. But I am very happy how the final product came out.
