If there’s ever a weekend to feel a bit patriotic I guess this one’s it! I stumbled across these witty London inspired posters at indie art collective Evermade.

La Lune, La Terre

There is a wonderful synergy and poignancy attached to these prints ‘La Lune’ and ‘La Terre’ by graphic designer Double Merrick.
