There was another thread, I think it was called Phat posters or something. Maybe Jeff can post a link...

Here u are Paul.  ;)

Maybe this thread would be better in the Posters by Size section:

http://www.allposterforum.com/index.php/topic,3317.0.html

I don't think large (phat) posters would be considered a genre, would it? (tho there was no better section at the time).  Plus it would help it from getting lost and forgotten about.

These posters are so large that you cannot expect them be contained in just one thread :)

I have to cut the grass before I display large poster :/
But seriously I have at least one bus shelter on display and switch out.  and one backlit lenticular bus that is always set up.



<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/qq6_NRFF-wk" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/qq6_NRFF-wk</a>

Produced to promote Bollywood film Boss, it is now on its way to the Indian city of Mumbai in a specially-built crate. When it arrives it will be put up in the city before moving on to Delhi.

  Made by Abbotsley-based company Macro Art, the World's Largest Poster was printed onto a PVC mesh in several strips 5m wide.

  It took a whole weekend to print and a day to put together, before a team of 30 helped roll it out at the airfield, The Cambridge News reported.

  Macro Art's Project manager, Ben Seward, said: "A highly skilled and dedicated team of staff have once again been able to bring everything together on time to realise our customers' dream of having a new World Record."

  The film is a comedy caper directed by Anthony D'Souza and also stars Mithun Chakraborty, Danny Denzongpa, Aditi Rao Hydari and Parikshit Sahni in pivotal roles. The movie is slated to release on Oct 16.

What makes for a "Large" poster?

Would it be anything larger than a OS or quad, for example?

Let's hope that Italian 2Fs squeak in there, too, at 39x55 inches.
