This silly, awe-inspiring collection of insplrational art from the 1970s showcases the best-loved posters, cards, book illustrations, and statuettes of the era in a fun-filled and nostalgic reminder of a time when all we needed was a hug to make our day. Hang in There is a gallery of beloved inspirational art from a simpler era. We loved these posters, plaques, and statues. In the pre-irony 1970s, at home and at school, these sad-eyed puppies, mischievous kittens, and loony chimps helped us through tough times. When the kittens told us that friendship was a special kind of love, or the chimp advised us to hope for the best and cope with the rest, or the puppy confided that a hug would make his day, we knew exactly what they meant. But somewhere along the way we lost track of our friends. As we grew up, we lost them to garage sales, or replaced them on our bedroom walls with rock stars, boys from teen magazines, or babes in beer ads. We set them free, but now they've come back to us. All of your old favourites are here. Open your heart once again to the elegant colt galloping through a field of wildflowers, seagulls walking on the beach, dew-covered roses, statues that teach us the meaning of "luv," and the various breeds of cats who always seem to find themselves desperately "hanging in there." As with all true love, we love these images today more than yesterday, but not as much as we will tomorrow. More than a quarter century later, the kitten is still holding on.
