Like all design, the style of Broadway's iconic show posters goes through phases. With each decade, a new type of design becomes the next trend, influencing the next ten years or more of Broadway artwork. The original posters and Playbill covers for some of your favorite shows tend to give away the era in which the show took place, but have you ever wondered what some of those show posters might have looked like if they had been designed during a different time period?
