Inspiring Postmortem Politician Posters
Stuart Thursby's 'Jack Layton's Words' Pays Tribute

By: Marie C. Hudson (Star) Aug 24, 11

The passing of Canada’s opposition leader on August 22, 2011, prompted artist Stuart Thursby to create ‘Jack Layton’s Words’—a series of posters displaying the New Democratic Party leader’s most memorable quotes from ‘Jack Layton’s last letter to Canadians.’

Using the NDP colors (white and orange), Thursby created these simple designs to honor the politician who lost his battle to cancer. Known for his ability to connect with Canadian citizens on a personal level, the posters seem incredibly appropriate as the words urge Canadians to do good, regardless of political affiliation. Layton’s inspiring quotes are important words for people all over the world, and they sound like they could be the next ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ poster sensation.

Whether you were a support of Layton’s work, or you’re completely lost when it comes to Canadian politics, these ‘Jack Layton’s Words’ posters have a lot of inspiration and wisdom to offer for people all over the world.
