“The main value of the printed poster is that it allows us to conquer the sense of touch, after the first visual impact. The artist has more control over the type of paper, inks and finishes that allow you to transmit a climax, as opposed to the screens and the variety of devices that can ruin the image or provide wrong colours. The printed poster is usually unique, grants one a feeling of belonging/ownership and the value of the presence of the work itself as against the ease, immediacy and economy of digital publications.”
