About the Artist

An Invitation Across the Nation, designed by J.D. Humphreys, is a collection of 20 posters featuring music artists from the 1960s. Each poster features a single lyrical "hook" from a popular song performed by the artist and reimagined through use of humor, thought-provoking graphic design, illustration and typography. Each collection accompanies a story that puts the music, artists and America into historical context.
