Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

About the Artist

We don't have much information about this fascinating collection of vintage Nigerian silk-screened workplace safety posters. They were collected by an American who worked in Nigeria in the 1960's and have been in storage for the last fifty years. All of them were silk-screen printed by the Federal Ministry of Information and issued by the Federal Ministry of Labour. They are signed by a number of different artists, including L. A. Ogunade, Eben. Alder, S. A. Jinadu and J. Owei.
