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.

In The Spotlight: Cultural Revolution Propaganda Posters

PP1063_1_m

Unite For Victory (1971)

The Great Proletariat Cultural Revolution in China (1966-1976) was launched by the founding father of the Chinese Communist Party, Chairman Mao (Mao Zedong; 1893-1976), following the political and economic failure of his Great Leap Forward campaign (1958-1962).

Dynamic propaganda posters were produced to reach the masses, often featuring images of the leader with workers, soldiers, large red flags and slogans in bold red text.

Feeling Inspired by The Great Gatsby…

PA0502_1_m  In 1925 F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby captured the spirit of the ‘roaring twenties’ era, becoming recognised as a classic American novel that is now reaching a whole new generation of movie-goers through the current release of Baz Luhrmann’s adaption starring Leonardo diCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton and Tobey Maguire.

Visually, the 1920s and 1930s brought a dramatic period of change in the art, craft and design world from Art Nouveau to stunning Art Deco and other new styles, which was reflected in poster designs of the age. Inspired by the luxury and glamour of this rich, bold and very modern period, here are a few original vintage posters available at www.AntikBar.co.uk:
