Beautiful Angle’s first poster, Swirl, was distributed on October 31, 2002, the anniversary of the posting of The Ninety-Five Theses by Martin Luther. Beautiful Angle takes a very non-traditional approach to this centuries-old craft. A typical press run is 120 posters, of which 80 are posted around the downtown area of Tacoma, and the remainder are sold. Beautiful Angle has a “strange, contradictory relationship with the city”; even though the posters are posted perhaps illegally, the group has won numerous community awards including the Chamber of Commerce 2016 public places award for community building. Beautiful Angle has also worked with other artists such as Mary Mann, Ryan Meline, poet Bill Kupinse and legendary designer Art Chantry. A nearly complete collection of posters is always on display at King’s Books in Tacoma.
