Featured:
Smirnoff “The Effect is Shattering”

smirnoff-accountancy smirnoff-friends smirnoff-kama-sutra 

 

 

 

These original vintage Smirnoff advertising posters are part of the 1970s campaign by the London-based Young and Rubican agency, which aimed to promote the vodka as a way to achieve glamour and excitement as an escape from the humdrum of daily life. (To emphasise the campaign’s risky innuendos, Avocado Sweet observes: “Substitute the word ‘heroin’  for ‘Smirnoff’ and it still makes sense.”)

The advertising campaign proved to be a great success for the company, resulting in vodka becoming so chic that it overtook gin in popularity and saw Smirnoff’s sales triple. In 1976 the campaign ended, following the tightening of the rules on alcohol advertising led by the government and the Advertising Standards Authorities in 1975.

These posters are all available in our Vintage Poster Auction on Saturday 3 August. Click here for more information with links to view our catalogue and register to bid via Live Auctioneers, The Saleroom or Invaluable.

Vintage Posters – Spotlight on Australia

“Vintage holiday posters reveal how Victorians used to travel… Before modern-day Aussies were getting rowdy on Contiki tours and angling for the best Instagram pose, their mid-century forebears were encouraged to take a Kodak and explore their own backyards — often by rail. As the Great Depression eased, the 1930s fast became the golden age of travel as regional towns far and wide put their best foot forward to entice domestic and international tourists…”
Read the full article at www.heraldsun.com.au/lifestyle/

In the Spotlight: American World War One Posters

100 years ago, in April 1917, the American Congress voted to declare war on Germany, followed by a declaration of war against Austria-Hungary in December 1917.

PP0325_1_mAlthough keen to remain neutral and keep out of the war, America had started to build up its military forces as a defensive measure following the sinking of the Lusitana in 1915 by a German U-boat, killing 128 American citizens.

In 1917 German submarines resumed sinking ships crossing the Atlantic, including American merchant ships, and President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress to “make the world safe for democracy” by voting in favour of war.

Joining the war as an independent power, the U.S. provided supplies, raw materials and war loans, and sent soldiers to join the allied forces on the Western Front in 1918. Their involvement PW0278_1_multimately led to a victorious end to WW1 in November 1918.

At home, Americans were encouraged to help with the war effort by increasing the production of munitions and food supply to support the country and troops. A nation-wide propaganda campaign to educate and enforce a sense of patriotism across the whole population included speeches at public gatherings, news articles and the display of posters.

Most of these posters were torn down and destroyed after the war; those that did survive now form an important part of social history.

Here is our current collection of American World War One posters (click on the images for more information):
