Inside The Simple Things Issue 7: the Collector

Talented artists spread Fidel Castro's revoluntionary message around the World

On Facebook and Twitter you’ve all been telling us how much you enjoy the collector feature inside The Simple Things. We do too. In seven Issues we’ve looked at all sorts of weird and wonderful collections from radios to valentines cards, and each one has been unique with a special story to tell. This month we take a look inside Michael Tyler’s Cuban political poster collection, a series of stunning and powerful images in which artistic freedom meets the struggle for freedom.
