→ 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):

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:

When one just isn’t enough…

…go for a series! Sometimes a few framed original vintage posters work better than one large statement piece poster, for example, if the wall space isn’t high enough or you’re looking to brighten up an otherwise dark corridor with splashes of colour.

Let’s start with a few posters from this wonderfully retro series from the 1960s featuring some quirky slogans and fun images:

PA0081_1_m  PA0080_1_m

PA0100_1_m  PA0078_1_m

PA0082_1_m  PA0090_1_m

PA0088_1_m  PA0098_1_m

Come rain or snow, this original vintage 1958 London Transport series will certainly create an amusing focal point:

PA0663_1_m  PA0664_1_m

PA0662_1_m  PA0661_1_m

…and from Venice to Paris, this original 1981 Orient Express series will appeal to Art Deco lovers and travel romantics:

PT0414_1_m  PT0415_1_m

PT0417_1_m  PT0418_1_m

PT0419_1_m  PT0416_1_m

Propaganda posters were also often published as a series, such as these original vintage 1952 safety posters produced by the US Government for their pilots during the Cold War era:

PP0033_1_m

PP0032_1_m

PP0029_1_m

PP0003_1_m

…and we have a few small and mid sized posters from this World War Two series, printed by the US Government in 1942 to help their troops recognise their allies:

PW0085_1_m

PW0085_2_m

PW0085_3_m

For some carefree pin-up style fun, this vintage 1950s advertising series by Dickens for Goodyear soles aims to draw your attention to these ladies’ pretty feet:

PA0183_1_m  PA0501_1_m

PA0179_1_m

PA0181_1_m

Meanwhile, this dynamic series of original 1930s Castrol posters promotes their sponsored speed records and distance achievements on land and in the air:

PS0272_1_m  PS0275_1_m

PS0199_1_m  PS0274_1_m

For more sporting inspiration with an artistic touch, this series of original 1972 posters commissioned for the Munich Olympics aimed to “represent the intertwining of sports and art worldwide”:

PS0107_1_m  PS0084_1_m

PS0041_1_m  PS0055_1_m

PS0148_1_m  PS0075_1_m

Posters are suitable for any room of the home or office and this series of original 1930s Bovril posters that resemble the public service announcements of the time might provide some fun for the kitchen:

PA0161_1_m  PA0360_1_m

PA0356_1_m  PA0353_1_m

This series of child health posters was published in 1952 to promote “good health habits in school and at home” and would look fantastic in a child’s bedroom, playroom, nursery or school:

PP0282_1_m  PP0283_1_m

PP0287_1_m  PP0288_1_m

We have plenty to choose from – including more from some of the series featured above and some previously featured 1969 travel advertising posters for SNCF by Salvador Dali and a collection of 1986-1992 London Underground art posters – so why not browse our website and our blog for more ideas, such as decorating a cinema room with original vintage James Bond or Marilyn Monroe posters.
