J.D. Humphreys: An Invitation Across the Nation Poster Series

An Invitation Across the Nation is a collection of twenty posters featuring and celebrating musical artists from the 1960s, especially those who helped break racial barriers through their music. Conceptualized and designed by J.D. Humphreys, each poster’s design centers around a single hook from a popular song by the featured artist, and is accompanied by a story that puts the music into a historical context. I’ve included a few examples of the posters below, but be sure to check out the entire series and read all of the included stories. You can find them all right here.
