description
The Boris Bučan poster published in 1982 is one of the first examples of a poster with dimensions that stood out from all previous versions of the genre. His mega-format is four times greater than the previous standard size, an innovation in design. This is the characteristic of the personal style of the author, who was later on to give the poster a square format. This poster has a vertical composition and at the same time retains its formal application – it is meant for wall display.

The poster shows three stylised figures of reduced volumes that symbolise the various different civilisations in this part of the world – Egyptian, Christian and Greek. Through the selection of these material and religious symbols the author drew attention to the heritage that museums keep, study and communicate.
