Title Poster, Political, Barack Obama, Vote Obama 08
Object Name Poster, Political
Description Hand made poster with the slogan: "Vote Obama * 08"
The letters are cut out of various colors of paper, and decorated, by hand, with a combination of marker and crayon and glued to the cardstock. (The '*' symbol above corresponds to a pink, paper, five-point star on the poster itself). Also of special note, the 0 (zero) in *08 has been made to look like the rising sun symbol of the Obama for America group. This effect is achieved by making the upper half of the zero blue, the lower half striped with red and white, and then the interior of the zero left open. The background is a large rectangular piece of blue cardstock/posterboard.
