So.. yes, I have to write something about this poster.

What I know is that the artist "Alexander" (who worked for the Dutch printer Verkerke) made quite a few poster with slightly provoking undertones, hidden messages and with humor in abundance. I have had a few of them and I love each and everyone of them. But what I keep thinking about is that this poster was made long before many of the average flat "toilet humor" posters out there. 

I am sure that this poster was made in the late 1960s as I have have had (and have) a few of Alexander's posters and some of them are dated in that period. But what I do not understand is the message of the poster. Maybe the poster was made to promote the idea of two different flush systems (for "small" and "big") - back then toilets could only flush "big".

Overall this poster marks the beginning of "the counterculture of the 1960s" which was a very important time period in the Western world. With that said, this poster is both art, history, provocation and beauty as one. 

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
