Batel

The following graphics would better exist in the public domain. I volunteered to do a single poster after Nora asked, but it turned out to be several posters. They made an excellent impact today at the protest. They were all created with Inkscape graphics software which is a free/open source application that works on both windows and GNU/Linux. It is a very easy to use graphics application.

I attached the original SVG so you can scale, print or modify. You might need some fonts from Arabeyes Batel باطل

Update 2005-12-04: Some quotes about this poster:

``A new poster showing the president's face with the word batel in flowing calligraphy across it has become overnight as iconic as the black on yellow Kefaya logo.'' --Ahdaf Soueif

``The creativity of newly politicised young people is astonishing, like this brilliant Mostafa Hussein creation that takes a leaf from old Egyptian film posters.'' --Baheyya

لا للتمديد لا للتوريث

I am not sure if anyone noticed but I tried to copy the style of hand painted Egyptian film posters.
