Burlesque of North America

I'm going through an Arcade Fire-specific obsession at the moment. This tends to happen to me when a band I like releases a great new album. I get really into them all over again and start You Tubing them, reading interviews, seeking out random and obscure facts. Today I delved deep into the merchandise section of their website and came across these AMAZING posters by artist Wes Winship of Burlesque of North America. I can not stress how insanely I love these and I think it's because they kind of sum up a lot of what I like in art and design. The colour palette is divine, the dynamic Constructivist compositions, the collage, references to sci-fi and the city and the beautiful typography.

I would love to own every one of these and put them up in a white walled room with a bench and sit and stare at them all day. A bit like when I visited the Tate Modern in March and found the Russian Constructivism poster room (below), I actually thought I'd died and gone to heaven.
