Deja vu
Most middle-and-old-aged citizens say they had a feeling of deja vu when they first caught sight of the New Year posters. "When we were young, (New Year) posters were annually pasted to doors at the time of the Spring Festival," said a man surnamed Hao. "However, in cities nowadays, we find it hardly possible to find New Year posters even if you explore places ranging from bookstores to roadside stands. We are lucky to come to the special exhibition, and find no reasons to miss the chance to take some (posters) home."

(Lucky Boy or "Zhao Cai Tong Zi" in Chinese)

And it was also learnt on the exhibition, which is staged in large part on the non-profit basis, many posters have been priced at two yuan ($0.3) or five yuan ($0.8) each. And some have been combined with Spring Festival couplets to appear convenient and terse.
