I'm a bit disappointed. I just received my National Poetry Month poster from the Academy of American Poets. (Yes, two weeks late, but what do you expect? Firstly, they're poets, not businesspeople. Secondly, you get what you pay for, and this was free.) Milton Glaser Designed this year's offering, and beautiful it is. The problem is, it's not very descriptive or evocative. In fact, one could argue that, given the word arrangement and the color scheme, it's rather difficult to read. Not very good if you're wanting to promote poetry or the reading of poetry.
