    Awesome collection, nice one.

    Friend of mine pointed out the similarities between 2012’s and 1972’s posters, in terms of form and colour. I wonder if there was any influence?

    Thanks Fiona, I remember the ‘controversy’ now, I’ve replaced it with a fuller image representation, I can’t remember if this was the original poster or one that was re-jigged following the complaints. I wondered about whether there was any influence from the 1972 poster to next years as well Dan, but looking at them both together again I’m not sure there is any particular link other than at most a tenuous one

    We are loving this blog post! Whilst we do have a soft spot for the 1972 poster and it does hang in our boardroom along with other Adelaide Festival posters, it did not explicitly influence our current poster design. They do make a very handsome couple.
