    I guess when you post the web site it just goes to the main page. If you click on where it says "highland art" on the left it's got some pretty cool process pictures. I like this from the article too for some reason
    "When I told them they were actually quite accomplished type designers they looked at me blankly. “Type designers? But we do not have computers!"

    They have skills that a computer can never do. I have yet to see a font that has flow like the old style posters. These guys are doing it right

    Since its foundation 21 years ago by Cliff Takaedza's late brother, the Highfield Art Club produces amazing work under the most primitive conditions. There are no cameras or film production facilities. The methods they use are simple. Some images (like an artist's portrait) are photographically exposed onto a screen at an external facility in the city, and information like venue, time and date that changes from week to week is designed on newsprint and the stencils are cut and taped onto the screen. This is then screen printed on poster size newsprint in bright colors like red, blue, green and sometimes black

    I love this stuff
