gorgeous pre-election day in Paris...and as if to reinforce the surreal quality of this weekend, all over town old election posters from previous campaigns are appearing, plastered where you'd expect yet another tired Sarko/Sego poster competition. on a corner near me is a refreshingly plain Mitterrand poster, circa 1981. a retired journalist from L'Humanité, Philippe Meunier, is apparently one of the people responsible for printing up the old posters & putting them up around town...he claims no overt political message, since he's including posters from across the political spectrum (avoiding the really ugly FN characters, fortunately!) this Chirac poster circa '86 is across the street from the Bouffes du Nord.
