BBC Broadsides

Starting in March 2011, I began putting broadsides (small posters) up around the Boston area (and some in Los Angeles, too). I call them BBC Broadsides. So far, these come in three flavors: Mappy Facts; Poems by Paul Johns; and Street Surveys.

Mappy Facts show maps I'd made of data about Boston and L.A.--income statistics, FBI crime stats, etc.

Here are hi-res jpegs of 5 Mappy Facts, if you'd like to put some up near you:

Boston area Mappy Facts:
-Mappy Facts #1: Where's all the crime?
-Mappy Facts #2: Where's the money?

Los Angeles Mappy Facts:
-Mappy Facts #3: Where's all the crime?
-Mappy Facts #4: Where's our water from?
-Mappy Facts #5: Where's the money?

Scroll down to see the posters themselves.
