American Advertising in Miniature

Vintage posters are not always large street advertising pieces.
This exhibition focuses on the behind the scenes world of the advertising agencies and pitch men and the small cards they distributed to promote themselves.

Although small in size, these ephemeral poster cards represent the best in American advertising in the 1920's to the 1940's.
These miniature posters offer the collector an excellent opportunity to assemble great original designs at modest prices...and still leave room on the walls for more!

Mather Salesman Samples

The Mather Work Incentive Posters were an outstanding series of inspirational images and work place propaganda printed from 1923 to 1929.

The large posters were posted in factories and businesses to promote better work ethics and morale.
This exhibition presents a very rare group of salesmen's poster cards, printed in very small format,
To our knowledge, these samples were never printed in large poster format, perhaps because of the onset of the Great Depression in 1929.

New York Subway Advertising Poster Cards

This series of miniature subway cards were designed to present new and original ideas in subway card treatments by some of the country's foremost poster artists.
The poster cards were mailed out weekly by the New York Subways Advertising company to possible NYC subway advertisers. It is rare to see so many at once!
