VINTAGE POSTERS

Much like his passion for European

Vintage Industrial Furniture, Guy

has a love for Vintage Lithographic

Posters. His determination only to

have the real thing means you only

get original lithographs here. He

picks them up on his travels to

Europe, mostly from France through

his connection in the trade and has

a large collection. They are a

stunning mix of vibrant and

colourful works, advertisements for

fashion, food, beverage and

automotive products. Well-known

artists such as Raymond Savignac

and Bernard Villemot were

commissioned by companies to

develop their marketing concepts

and create the artwork. These

posters would have filled the

streets of France on billboards,

subways and the sides of buildings.

They would have been torn down or

pasted over, once the advertising

campaign was over. Some however

were kept or rescued by collectors,

 

the printing houses, the advertising

companies and even the artists.

We also carry one of the largest

selections of theatre advertising

posters designed by Croatian painter

and graphic artist Boris Bućan (1947).

Arguably the most important poster

artist of his time Bućan’s distinctive

approach to poster design has won him

numerous awards and recognition around

the world.

Posters are a great addition to any

decorating mix, given the variety and

colour of the subjects. Posters work

well in almost any space, home, office

or warehouse.

All our posters are linen backed to

protect the poster and maintain its

condition.

We can arrange framing and delivery at

your request.
