Sibelius Poster

A little project to pay a tribute to my current home town hero Jean Sibelius made in collaboration with a friend of mine. We came up with the idea over the pint in the local bar Birger. The year 2015 marked the 150th anniversary of his birth and Jean Sibelius events were all over the place in town. Posters, books, postcards were everywhere, but one photo was missing and that was the famous portrait by the most famous portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh.

We acquired license for the photo from both Karsh foundation and Sibelius Family. We printed a number of posters on very fine museum quality paper to be sold in concerts and other events and there was of course an online shop selling on-demand posters of the magnificent portrait. Posters are shipped around the world!
