In The News: Spring Into Summer With Vintage Posters!

We’re delighted to have been featured this month in the following variety of articles on original vintage travel posters, art exhibition posters, posters for button collectors and graphic design posters:

Financial Times – How To Spend It

Vintage travel posters are going places: A golden era of exploration, relaxation and adventure has taken on new lustre…

From the seduction of a poster emblazoned with ‘Egypt, the land of mystery and romance’ to the mighty promise that ‘The most beautiful women in the world summer in Monte Carlo’, the allure of vintage travel posters is still palpable. And with a heightened nostalgia for the golden age of travel, these windows onto a bygone era capture the joy of exploration and adventure even more intensely…” (Weekend edition, 22-23 May)

Best In Show: Vintage posters have been popular with collectors for many years…the niche field of art exhibition posters is exciting, relatively unexplored and…an affordable way to buy into the story behind an artist’s career…” (June 2021)

Graphic Design Posters Stick em’ up!Good graphic design can transform advertising into an art form… The pleasing shapes in these posters, their tight typography and eye-catching colours, come together to raise awareness…they can simultaneously cause us to raise an eyebrow, crack a smile or start making plans… They look great too. Put them on your walls. Here’s our paean to the alchemy of advertising done well...” (May 2021)

French Language Day and Francophonie Week 2021

It’s Francophonie Week – a celebration of francophone history and culture, culminating in French Language Day on 20 March.

To mark the occasion, we have put together a collection of some of our favourite French language books, magazines, and ephemera from our Antikbar books website – perfect for any French speakers, whether you’re fluent or just learning the basics! (Click on the images for more information:)

Car fans will love L’Automobile: Notre Ami (1949) by Jacques Lost; it’s full of interesting facts about the inventions that preceded the car, as well as some beautiful art deco illustrations by Geo Ham and Pierre Rousseau.
Académie Nationale de Music et de Danse (1932) – a beautiful theatre programme for the French National Academy of Music and Dance in Paris. The programme advertises a tragedy Elektra, and a ballet Un Divertissement. Dated Monday, 27 June 1932.
Aviation de France (1945) by R de Narbonne and R Gaujour is a great read for anyone interested in planes – chapters include The Passion of the Allies and The Sky of the Empire.
Learn about Soviet history with Russie D’aujourd’hui (Russia Today 1938).  This issue is dedicated to the Soviet youth and features articles by Russian and foreign experts, journalists and political scientists, discussing the international geopolitical situation and the place of Russia in a new world reality.
Test your knowledge of French geography with this 1950s tourist leaflet and map of Bourgogne (Burgundy). The pamphlet promotes Dijon, Beaune and Cluny, and gives instructions on tours of the area, with details on transport links and what to see.
Issue 316 of Miroir du Monde (1936), a weekly illustrated magazine, is dedicated to advertising and includes articles such as Reflections on Advertising, The Great Parisien Press and Plagiarised Publicity. The striking cover design is by the so-called father of modern advertising Leonetto Cappiello (1875-1942).
Published in 1937, this French-language guidebook to Vincenzia Italy features maps, photographs and reproductions of the city’s artwork – perfect for anyone dreaming of a holiday abroad!

Art Guide 2018: Pin-Up Power

“Visually arresting, bold and inventive, posters are highly collectable…” AntikBar’s founder is featured in The Art Issue of Homes & Antiques magazine with a few of our original vintage posters on their Shop the Look page (Summer 2018 Interiors with Soul > Pin-up Power pp.6-7).

H&A ArtGuide Summer2018

“…Posters are important pieces of social history. Produced for a purpose – advertising or propaganda – they were early forms of mass communication, and the artists had to condense their messages into something meaningful, as well as visually powerful.

…Collectors focus on what they’re passionate about and usually come to posters for two reasons: they like the image, and the subject is something they can relate to personally. There are so many ways to collect – by subject, style, artist – with a price range to suit any budget.”

In the News: Why vintage posters make brilliant Christmas gifts

AntikBar has been featured by Homes & Antiques and The Resident on why original vintage posters offer something unique and make ideal Christmas presents:

ha-dec-2016  Before the advent of television, posters were the most effective and broad-reaching medium for advertising and propaganda. Designed to grab the attention of people passing by, posters presented artists with the challenge of distilling a commissioned message into minimal words with maximum visual impact.

Some of the designers achieved this goal by creating spectacular designs that exuded warmth, comfort and style; others rallied the masses to new victories in war and peace. Being topical, posters absorbed and reflected the prevailing and changing art styles and fashions at a rapid pace and became part of the avant-garde art movement.

They were meant to be displayed temporarily on walls and discarded. For this reason, not many survived and this makes them highly collectable.

Today original vintage posters make a great statement and ideal Christmas presents. With such a variety of subject matter, styles and colour schemes, they can work in modern offices, apartments, Victorian houses, or children’s rooms. Posters can often trigger emotional responses, appealing to our sense of nostalgia and happy memories of childhood, travel, or hobbies, such as the Austrian art deco skiing poster above.

The other benefit is that their wide price range suits any budget. They make a fantastic talking point and a sound investment – if you get it right.

ha-dec2016  Five top tips for buying vintage posters

  • Authenticity is a key factor in determining and maintaining the value of your poster.  Consult a specialist dealer so you can be sure you’re buying an original and not a reproduction print.
  • Art Deco posters are very stylish and have a strong collector base. They look fantastic in modern homes and maintain their value.
  • Designs that represent good investments include ski posters for their timeless appeal and cinema posters, especially Oscar winners, popular actors and cult classics (such as James Bond).
  • Posters from the 1950 and 60s can be a great entry point into collecting as the designs are often bright, bold and quirky.
  • Make sure that the poster is reasonably good condition without significant losses, stains or tears. They can be restored but, depending on the extent of restoration required, this will add cost to your purchase. Avoid posters that are backed on board or posters that are laminated as this decreases their value.

When hanging, keep framing simple.  Most poster designs are bright and colourful and don’t need any additional boost or distraction.

A simple black frame works well in separating the poster from the background.  Non-reflective glass will allow it to be seen to its best effect and, like all artwork, they should never be displayed in direct sunlight.

With little of that about in December, it’s the ideal time of year to choose, share and enjoy these pieces of history. – Homes & Antiques

Is Christmas always an exciting time for you?
The build up to Christmas is always busy for us. Posters are ideal for someone looking to give something more memorable and special. They can be tailored to a person’s interest; for example, a favourite film, holiday destination, sport or as a fun gift relating to their job or hobby, and we get quite a lot of orders.

What do you think will make you stand out this Christmas?
We are putting together a winter related poster exhibition – Let It Snow – at our gallery opening in November, which should generate some seasonal interest. A lot of the posters that will be on display are from the 1930s-50s and show a glam side to winter travel.

If you had to select one must-buy item from you, what would it be and why?
We have nearly 2,000 unique original posters in stock and it would be challenging to pick only one. My personal favourite at the moment is a fun Guinness poster – Guinness When You’re Tired – featuring a pint of Guinness sitting with hands crossed and a big smile on the creamy foam. It always makes me smile.

If you had three wishes this Christmas what would they be? It would be nice to have a bit of snow (but not too much). No disruptions to the public transport would be a bonus. Plenty of festive R&R with the family after the Christmas rush. The Resident
