International Poster Center

poster for "Modern Posters" Auction

This event has ended.

Posters Please—the world’s leading dealer of authentic vintage posters—will be offering over 400 lots of rare, original posters from the 20th century. This will be the first sale of its kind ever, opening up a previously untapped market to the auction community.

Aimed at first-time buyers, with many reserves as low as $100, this sale offers the unique opportunity to begin collecting works of art that will only increase in value.

With sections dedicated to politics, music, fashion, entertainment, travel, and sports, this sale follows the trajectory of pop culture from the 1950s through the 1980s. Bring back what once hung on the walls of your (or your parents’) dorm room. From Levy’s to Levis, Fu Manchu to Nixon, Nina Simone to Paul Simon, the Stenberg Brothers to the Marx Brothers, Mao to Tao, no sale has ever been filled with this many iconic images or notable personalities.

Highlights include a complete set of the famous San Francisco Rock posters, the first printing of Ricky Jay’s ‘Cards As Weapons’ poster and book, the ghoulish advertisements of Edward Gorey, Gunther Kieser’s concert images, a half-naked Elvis, the Beatles, Andy Warhol, Herman Miller, the cult images of Yokoo, and both the political and the erotic posters of Tomi Ungerer, of Schoolhouse Rock fame.

Particulars: The auction begins at 5:30 pm on Thursday, March 12th.
The posters will be on view from February 27 to March 11, M-F, 9-5; Sat/Sun, 11-6.
