→ This extraordinary collection of Soviet and Palestine posters was acquired by our seller during his trips to the USSR and Lebanon in the 1960s and 1970s. 

In March 1969, the seller joined a UK delegation of the National Union of Students on a visit to the USSR. During his stay in Moscow, Leningrad and Tallinn, he acquired some of the posters. Later that year, he wrote to the Soviet authorities who sent several parcels of posters to him at university. 

The Palestinian posters were obtained in Summer 1971 when the seller travelled to the Middle East to apply for a postgraduate course at the American University in Beirut. On arrival he realised the university was not fully functioning due to the unstable and rapidly deteriorating political and military situation. He stayed in Beirut for two months then visited Syria, Jordan and Israel, returning home via Beirut. At the time, he considered becoming a journalist so arranged an interview with Bassam Abu Sharif, the spokesperson for the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine). During this meeting he was given many of the posters that form this collection. The new symbol of the PFLP was adopted in May 1969 and these posters are among the earliest published by the Palestinian resistance.

Spotlight on Art Deco Posters

PA2012_1_mArt Deco is one of the most widely recognised and celebrated design styles, conveying visions of sleek ocean liners, the jazz age of the Roaring Twenties, the industrialised Machine Age between the wars, stylised typography and elegant craftsmanship.

Originating in France, Art Deco (short for Arts Decoratifs) influenced design during the 1920s and 1930s in everything from architecture and fashion to transport and home furnishings, and was reflected in the graphic design and poster art produced during the period.

100 years on, this iconic art movement continues to radiate luxury and glamour today. A handful of our current stock of original vintage Art Deco posters are featured below (click on the images for more information):

Spotlight on Original Vintage ROSPA Safety Posters

The British charity RoSPA – Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents – was formed in 1916 as the London Safety First Council (renamed RoSPA in 1941). The organisation has run a variety of successful campaigns over the last century addressing issues from road safety and safety at home to industrial and workplace safety.

Below are a few posters from our current collection of over 60 original vintage mid-century RoSPA posters that feature clever eye-catching designs by notable artists such as Pat Keely and Leonard Cusden. These posters were issued to help prevent accidents from drink driving, to demonstrate the importance of obeying the rules of the road and the dangers of being careless when using tools and machinery, and to provide advice on first aid and tips on avoiding accidents (click on the images for more information):

In The Spotlight: Ludwig Hohlwein (1874-1949)

LudwigHohlweinMunchenThe notable German graphic artist Ludwig Hohlwein initially trained and worked as an architect. In 1906 he shifted his focus to graphic design and went on to become a prolific poster designer. Hohlwein’s distinctive style is instantly recognisable through his creative use of colour, composition and typography.

We have recently added an impressive collection of posters by Ludwig Hohlwein to our website. These posters were created during the 1900s, through the 1910s and World War One to the early 1920s (click on the images for more information):

Original Vintage Poster Auction (featuring a significant collection of Polish posters)

Our next original vintage poster auction on Saturday 14 January will feature a significant collection of Polish posters [see below] as well as a variety of other posters from around the world.

New and experienced collectors and dealers will benefit from our low starting prices with no reserves, some starting from under £5.

A preview will be open at our gallery from 11-14 January (until 2pm on 14 January) and the auction will start online at 4pm UK time.

Please visit our auction page on LiveAuctioneers or The Saleroom to view our catalogue and register to bid. [Note: more items are still being uploaded to our catalogue so please continue to check back for new listings.]

the-great-escape  About this Collection

This significant collection of Polish posters was amassed by Eberhardt Voigt (1920-1983), a keen amateur filmographer and poster collector.

Mr Voigt joined the film club movement that dominated the screens in the 1950s and became friends with Enno Patalas, Werner Krusche, Theo Fürstenau and Peter Pleyer. In 1957 he produced a documentary about Turkey with Viktor Schamoni, which included footage of the visit of Theodor Heuss, the German President.

In 1956 he met the Polish film journalist Leon Buckowieki (1916-2005) at the Bad Ems film festival, both united in the hope that Polish October and the new leader Gomolka would secure a period of more freedom in Poland, following the uprising of workers in Poznan earlier that year. They met again at the Kurzfilmtage in Oberhausen and kept in touch, with many of Leon’s letters arriving in tubes containing posters by the most artistic designers of Poland’s great period of film poster production.

This collection was exhibited once in Munich during the 1970s in a show organised by the German film director Peter Schamoni (1934-2011). Mr Voigt’s family has kept this collection since his death in 1983 but would now like to give new collectors the opportunity to engage with the heyday of Polish poster art.

the-great-escape  Just Collecting: “For years, Polish artists have gained a reputation for creating some of the most original, eye-catching and downright weird posters for famous movies. The poster for the Polish release of the WWII classic The Great Escape was created in 1967 by the renowned graphic artist Wiktor Górka (1922-2004), who also produced posters for classics including Spartacus, Cabaret and Moby Dick.This striking design distils the action into a series of stylized figures, including one on a motorcycle representing Steve McQueen’s iconic fence jump, and is a perfect example of how Polish artists reinterpreted imagery from films in unique ways.”

atg_sabrina  Antiques Trade Gazette: “A collection of film posters dating to the heyday of Polish poster art in the 1950-60s will be offered without reserve in AntikBar’s January auction…This example for the American comedy film Sabrina starring Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart is guided at £150-300. It was made in 1967 by Maciej Zbikowski (b. 1935), a Polish poster designer known for his signature use of simple shapes in outlined block colours.”

The Dutiful Dog – Man’s Best Friend

PA0665_1_m  Dogs are widely recognised as being man’s best friend, offering unconditional love and companionship as pets and help as working dogs in a variety of roles from guide dogs and service dogs to hunting and herding livestock. These loyal and intelligent animals have been featured in books, poems, films, cartoons and artwork for centuries. For dog lovers, here’s a snapshot of a few of our original vintage posters that feature man’s best friend:
