About This Poster
“The Drinker’s Dictionary” was printed in The New England Weekly Journal and The Pennsylvania Gazette in 1736. It is comprised of 228 terms all meaning “drunk”. I've selected a term for each letter in the alphabet, excluding U, X, Y, and Z which Ben Franklin, the author, omitted. Pick your favorite and use it while getting “nimptopsical”.
This poster design is part of A New England Brew, a collaborative event hosted by BSDS in conjunction with Backlash Beer Co. in Boston, MA. Twenty eight contributing designers were asked to interpret the theme “A New England Brew” through the medium of an 18x24-inch poster. All profits will benefit Artists for Humanity, an organization which helps under-resourced youth into paid employment in the arts.
