This poster is called "Birth of the Cool" by Cornel Windlin from the Swiss poster collection.
I posted earlier my submission "etre illustre'" however this was my first choice but it became too difficult so I put it aside and tried a different one. I went back to it hoping to have a new perspective , I'm a photoshop beginner so I'm trying to gain more experience. This one gave me a tough time trying to match the font, I must have tried every font in elements and its still not a perfect match. I also wasn't sure how to get the black markings found over some of the white areas. Its not a perfect match but I thout I'd share anyway.
