En ce moment...

Take your pick! What's on in Versailles as seen on a billboard last week. Billboards like this one are scattered around many French cities in an attempt to avoid what we call 'savage billposting'.

.... à l'affiche (c'est le cas de le dire !)

LD said...

That is very un-savage looking actually quite civilized. Our over here are generally quite chaotic with everyone jockying for space

Jacob said...

I first saw this type of advertising in Paris and liked it very much..."savage billposting" is all the rage in the States.

Are you saying all of this is going on in Versailles at the same time? That's amazing!

Bob Crowe said...

A lot going on! You don't see so much of this in the US any more, except maybe on college campuses. Everybody learns of events on Facebook or Twitter (I minimally use the former but want nothing to do with the latter) and gets the details on some web site.

Does it mean anything that my identification word is "mosad," the Israeli intelligence service?

Randy said...

Like LD said here we do it chaotic. This is actually quite nice.

It's so very tidy. The notices don't seem to be jockeying with each other for our attention the way such notice boards do here in the States.

T. Becque said...

Great idea! It makes for a colorful geometric image - very nice!

Small City Scenes said...

Such a good idea. I have seen similar ones here in the small artsy tourist towns. MB

Dina said...

So orderly and easy to read, not savage at all.
You give me an idea for a post.

Rob and Mandy said...

Il s'en passe des choses a Versailles. Ce serait une bonne idee d'avoir ca ici aussi.

VP said...

The results are quite nice as a mix of colors and you have a few things going on!

Versailles est une ville pleine de vie et de mouvement artistique,l'image est colorée et très intéressante, mais quelque fois je suis confuse, comme si en face de quelque pollution visuelle, beaucoup des informations...mais moi même cette chose s'arrive quand par exemple, je vois une vitrine de liquidation ( sales ) soldes, etc ( mdr) :)

Everything is so neat and orderly! Superb collection of colors, I think this is really interesting.

et je vois pas les coordonnées du club d'anglais

tu me diras que je n'ai pas ton adresse ;-)))

EG Wow said...

This looks so tidy! Here people tend to put their notices on top of others, which I think is very rude.

Kaori said...

Smart city! I think I'd want to peak into Aikido...I think that was japanese :-)

B SQUARED said...

I hope the idea spreads.

Sharon Van Lieu said...

This is a great idea. We have one downtown but in the neighborhoods, folks just staple them to telephone poles.

Sorry about not having my town photos posted - rained all weekend and will rain all week if the forecast is to be believed. I won't be able to get any shots till the weekend.

It's quite colorful at least!

Malyss said...

Au moins c'est varié, y a de quoi faire, aucune excuse pour s'ennuyer!

BaysideLife said...

A work of art in itself. And so much going on. A great idea.

Loree said...

And it's a good idea too. Here people stick their posters all over the place.

Tammie Lee said...

so many wonderful choices~

Jack said...

It seems very organized to me, as well as colorful. Personally, I like well done posters. The best of them are an art form. I have some from the 1920s that I really enjoy.

Bergson said...

le club d'anglais à son local chez toi car c'est toi la prof non ?

Catherine said...

Oh ! Les copieurs ! Les mêmes films qu'à Paris.

Francisca said...

It's not only a sane idea, it looks GOOD! A perfect mosaic.
