A Book Project of illustrated Posters. A historical Documentation of fascinating Posters around the cultural, social and economic activities and also some political statements from 1920 -1950 in the USA. The focus on this Project are the artistic aspects.
My name is Anne, i'm living as Artist and Graphic Designer in the south of Germany. I love Ilustrations and Colour Concepts, reduced things. My passion is painting, cooking and concepts for lifestyle, like furnishing or wall concepts. I made a lot of Vintage Concepts with Wooden Poster Lettering, stamping, printing old drawings on Textiles and a lot more.
This was the reason, why i started this project. While i was researching vintage graphics, i discovered some really awesome Posters. Most of them were "Public Domain" images with a very high resolution, but a lot were very damaged. But i decided with my partner to retouch and restore them, because we had never seen this amazing stuff anywehere before.
I discovered a funny Poster Compilation, dedicated to "Books". I switched them into a colorful Postcardset and add them to the Bokks, when we reach 4K!
NEW: LARGE ARTPRINT EDITION:available as reward in 24x36 Inch and 70x100 cm:
So we retouched thousands of scratches, hairs and dust particles, renewed paper structures and optimized some of these posters for the Book resolution.
The Book includes 72 Pages, 170 Grams Paper inside, Hardcover. Blue Tail- & Headband, Glossy Cover.
I want to upgrade the Book to 92 pages, we produced a Prototype for testing with another Book, the quality is really awesome. The 170Grams Matte Paper feels really strong and silky, the Colours are really fantastic!
I discovered a lot of new stuff for the Book and the haptical aspect with 92 pages feels more worthy and the weight is really heavy with about nearly 800 grams.
There are fascinating Artworks and really great typographic concepts, as you can see it in todays graphic studios!
We selected 60 stunning illustrations, that are really outstanding. We have more than 200 in stock and are still researching.
These Posters are from the 30ies and are really stylish. Looks like they were created by a Hipster Design Studio ; )
Touristic and Travel Posters have been drawn in wonderful athmospheric, colourful scenes...
Education and reading was very important.
I also offer Artprints on 200 Grams Heavy Matte Paper 50x70 cm, printed with solid Ink in Museum Quality. They are produced in the US and in Europe as well and are shipped worldwide. You can select under 25 different Motives, optimized for this size.
The Artprints are not framed, but i highly recommend to frame them, the surface is very sensible. The Book Edition comes with an A2 Poster "Housing Photographs" folded to A4. The Motive is a very puristic style, as you can see here:
We also selected two Motives for T-Shirt Printing. We will send you a Survey after the Project. The Shirts will come seperately to you. Shipped from US or Europe, depends where you live.
Tht's it for the moment to start, I hope you like my Project, and i would be really happy to realize this Book with your help. Time to show those wonderful early drawings to the world. Made without Photoshop and without Illustrator, printed with those Woodletters you see above.
Last but not least, i had another idea before: ART OF FASHION. Maybe this will the next project, if this can be realized! Thank you all,
