I stumbled upon this trailer for a Globe Poster documentary, and am dying to learn more about it! The video is the work of John Lewis (a dear friend of the Cicero brothers) and Alex Castro (co-director of Mr Boh’s Brewery)

Frank and Bob Cicero humbly explain the simplicity and boldness of their designs. John Waters is as charming as ever, describing the nostalgic style of Globe posters. Solomon Burke, who passed away this past fall, emphasizes the connection between Globe Poster and Black history.

If watching Bob poignantly predict the future of Globe doesn’t make you choke up, I don’t know what will.
