About Vintage Posters

The Galerie Fitzroy only deals in original posters; there is not one reproduction amongst our collection. When you see the year of a poster on this website, that was when the poster was printed... and yes, some are more than 100 years old!

Each poster was created by a particular artist (Toulouse-Lautrec is probably the most well-known) to advertise a particular product for a particular company for a short-lived advertising campaign. However, not all of them made it to the billboard or wall. The posters we have collected were saved - most likely stored by the printer, the company or the posterists themselves - and have inadvertently become a rare piece of history, a snap-shot of the time. 

We have sourced far and wide to create this collection of valuable, fabulous, original poster art.
