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. Poems by Paul Johns feature poems by Paul Johns. Street Surveys ask questions that people can answer by removing a slip of paper.

If you'd like to put some up near you, just download the hi-res versions, which are on each page.

Scroll down to see some of photos of the broadsides on the street.
