Don't text or check your phone when speaking with others. Give Your Full Attention. Ted Slampyak, The Art of Manliness

Poster Illustrated by Ted Slampyak (The Art of Manliness)

The Art of Manliness has created half a dozen faux “propaganda posters” to lay out some of the simple rules of modern etiquette:

During the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, the use of “propaganda posters” were popular for encouraging good behavior — teaching safety, boosting worker morale, and rousing wartime sacrifice. I’ve always enjoyed the art and design of these posters, and decided to have Ted whip up a set of originals to address an area of behavior where modern society is often lacking: smartphone etiquette.

Come to think of it, maybe it’s not right to call these “faux” posters after all – a number of commenters are planning to print them out and start plastering.
