Posters are a great way to add colour and an individually unique statement to any room of the home or office, including a cinema room, child’s playroom and holiday retreat, and they can be suited to the size and budget as required. The variety of subjects and styles in poster design make them adaptable to any interior design, from contemporary to traditional, and perfect as a gift. Original vintage posters are also highly collectible and are recognised as a sound art investment. As antique and vintage items, they are also eco-friendly.

AntikBar is a London-based online business specialising in original vintage posters covering a variety of subjects – travel, advertising, sport, cinema, war and propaganda – from around the world, mainly from the late 1800s to 1970s. We attend fairs and events throughout the year and offer worldwide delivery, collection advice, consultancy and search on demand services for collectors, individual clients and interior designers. We are currently participating in the “See USSR” exhibition in London, which ends on 31 August, and we will be at the next Decorative Fair from 1-6 October; further information on these events are listed on our News & Events page.
