What is an original Vintage Poster

Originating from Paris, Vintage Posters are considered to be the original form of advertising used from the late 1800s until the mid-1900s. Posters were designed to be pasted in public places to advertise a product or event, with no intent to last hundreds of years. The ones available today were those that were not displayed either because of the limited number of extras made exclusively for collectors or because they were packed away in storage and forgotten about, until recently. 

However, they are more than just forgotten pieces of art. These posters are timeless mementos that evoke a sense of nostalgia for some, while for others they signify a pivotal shift in advertising and culture. 

They have not only grown to become coveted art forms, showcased in museums and places of significance across the globe but are also now a widely popular focal point in hotels, restaurants and homes, aimed at creating a unique and unforgettable atmosphere. A deciding factor for many is the personal meaning attached to the poster, be it related to a sport one loves, a place they’ve been or a special life event.

Why buy Vintage Posters in Australia from Letitia Morris?

We source our original posters from Paris and the extended regions of France. After the poster has been sourced and shipped to Australia, the poster is linen-backed onto high-quality canvas linen, which adds to the preservation and conservation of the piece.

We work with Fini Frames, official framers for the National Gallery of Victoria, to ensure our clients are guaranteed the highest quality hand-crafted, archival-style framing available. Letitia Morris Gallery offers a free delivery service on all our framed, large-format posters to inner Melbourne locations.

Our collection of posters are original lithographs. A lithograph is produced and pressed by hand, using stone or metal plates to paper to produce commercially reproduced images. Closely resembling a painting, lithographs are unique, which adds to the appeal. If a lithograph is in excellent condition and production numbers are low, this can create a sense of exclusivity and increase the value of a poster if circulation decreases.

At Letitia Morris, our mission is to offer an unparalleled selection of posters, ensuring that every enthusiast and collector finds something that resonates with their taste and interests. In addition to our regular services, we understand that our clients have diverse schedules and needs. To accommodate this, we offer private appointments after hours.

It's an ideal opportunity for those who wish to take their time examining pieces, seek expert advice, or simply prefer a more private setting for their viewing. Contact us today and get one step closer to adding the next poster to your collection.
