Exposed: Highlights from the Toronto Star Photograph Archive

Toronto Public Library is pleased to announce a new exhibition, Exposed, featuring highlights from the Toronto Star Photograph Archive. Exposed presents some of the memorable images that graced the pages of Canada’s largest daily newspaper. Powerful and provocative, these photographs were the lens through which Toronto Star readers witnessed the defining moments of the 20th century.

Getting the Big Picture in B-Zero

In 1953, the Nissenbi (Japan Advertising Artists Club) Poster Competition set the entry format size as B1 (103 cm × 72.8 cm). This format quickly became the standard for posters in Japan. However, for special occasions, Japanese graphic designers took advantage of the larger horizon of the B-Zero size (103 cm × 145.6 cm). Designing in the B-Zero format is the most challenging and rewarding task for graphic designers. Exactly double the size of B1, these expanded posters are designed to dazzle commuters at train and subway stations.
