This was a good read, and adds more perspective to John's (DarvishJo) posts about posters from this part of the world.

I enjoyed reading that too.  I've communicated with Abboudi on a number of occasions and it was a real treat to see that picture of his office.  He has a collection that makes a lot of Cairo collectors very jealous because he has a lot of old original posters that have now become practically impossible to find!
