    Can anybody direct me to where I can find more historic information on the Think Different Campaign and Poster Series.

    I know there were 4 or 5 poster series, but I'd like to know which posters belong to which series.. and so on.

    Thanks in advance!

    i'm not sure, but the whole series might be covered in this book:

    http://redlightrunner.com/19yearofthin.html

    it's quite pricey, but maybe you can find it somewhere just to look through to find the information you need.

    I REALLY want the Ansel Adams poster.

    I think it is like 200 bucks.

    The significant other would cut my nuts off.

    The smaller (11x17) ones? Those 10 were/are a set that were distributed to educators. I think that redlightrunner sell the set for $300!

    p.s. I have 2 of these on my wall at home, another 2 I've just bought of eBay and another one I am bidding on now... So far the most I've had to pay was £30 for the Jim Henson/Kermit one...

    Sorry! The same seller seems to get more posters every so often so you might get another chance soon...

    He sent me one of those 'second chance' offers, so he's got more then one. But by then I'd already won this which I can't believe didn't go for more.

    That's a good price, but you need a pretty big space to put it up!

    Yeah. I have 16 total. Just trying to figure out which ones I don't have.

    I have:

    1. Adams
    2. Miles Davis
    3. Henson
    4. Jackie Robinson
    5. Buz Aldrin
    6. Lucy
    7. Ghandi
    8. Amella Earnhart
    9. Tom Edison
    10. Ted Turner
    11. Picasso
    12. Hitchock
    13. Joan Baez
    14. Einstein
    15. Caser Chavez
    16. Churchill

    Some posters have the multi-colored logo and some have the solid white logo depending on which series they were a part of. A series consisted of about 5 posters and there were about 4 or 5 series.

    I know I'm missing:

    • Rosa Parks
    • Martha Graham
    • Sinatra
    • Fenamin

    not sure which other ones I'm missing.

    EDIT= A series was the 24x36 poster set, the 11x17 had different people or/different poses with more people then the actual "poster series (24x36)"
