What is an “educational poster box” ?
A poster box is a set of simple, colorful drawings, which are covered with plastic for durability and which are packed in a strong wooden crate.
Each poster box addresses a specific theme and includes a number of drawings ranging from a dozen to more than sixty.
They are used in schools, development centers, and during special information sessions.
