Canada's The Globe And Mail on the Stick No Bills™ designs exhibited at Barefoot in Colombo

"Most alluring was the shop-with-in-a-shop for Stick No Bills, a purveyor of cheeky, mod Sri Lankan posters. Some designs were actually pulled from the archives and restored such as the smart 1950s-era Air Ceylon ads), others were new designs, evoking that impossibly slick mid-century aesthetic and casting Sri Lanka as a glamorous, stylish travel destination. It was as if they’d been carefully preserved in a time capsule during the war and now were now being reissued."
