Globe at MICA's Profile

About

Launched over a card game in 1929 in Philadelphia, opened in Baltimore during the Depression, purchased from original owners by long-time employee Joseph Cicero Sr. and then owned by his sons Frank, Bob and Joe Jr., Globe printed the posters that defined American entertainment, from music concerts to carnivals to the circus. Globe closed its doors in 2011 but found a new home for all of its amazing wood type, cuts, and ephemera: MICA, the Maryland Institute College of Art. This Etsy store will showcase Globe's wood type, hand-carved cuts and dayglo style with new work by MICA students and staff.
