Spotlight on Mid-Century Posters

Mid-century refers to the twentieth century design period that influenced all aspects of art and design, including architecture, interiors and graphic design. Typical features of this modernist style include more open floor plans, simple and natural sculptural shapes, Scandinavian forms and forward thinking atomic space age themes to produce objects that would prove to be popular, comfortable and functional.

Many of the posters created during this period are colourful and fun, featuring iconic designs by notable artists with curved geometric shapes, repeating patterns and bold colours. Below are a few of the original vintage mid-century posters that we currently have in stock (click on the images for more information):

→ 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):
