Talk – Introduction to Collecting Posters
We would like to invite you to our talk on collecting posters, which will include a brief history of posters, covering some of the main art styles and collectible subjects with an explanation of printing techniques. We will also cover posters as an alternative investment in art, give guidance on how to spot a fake and provide practical information on poster condition, preserving posters and starting a collection. Tickets cost £10 (includes a copy of our catalogue and welcome drink). Places are limited so please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to book a place at this event.
