      EVENT DETAILS
      The International Vintage Poster Fair

      The International Vintage Poster Fair, the world’s oldest and largest sale and exposition of original vintage posters, returns to San Francisco the weekend of November 1st at Fort Mason Center. Thousands of posters, dated from the 1890’s - 1980’s, will be on display and available for purchase throughout the weekend. World-class exhibitors from Belgium, France, Great Britain, Switzerland, and the United States will offer the finest of their collections at the annual Fair. Original vintage posters of all genres, including food and liquor advertisements, film, travel and transportation and international expositions will be represented. Styles include the popular Art Deco and Modernism posters as well classic Art Nouveau, Victorian images and more. All posters available at the Fair have been vetted for authenticity by the International Vintage Poster Dealers Association (IVPDA).

      This year’s Feature Exhibit, “Dressed to Sell” will highlight fashion in advertising. A curated collection of posters will showcase fashion through the decades, demonstrating how one’s wardrobe mirrored its moment in time. From the conservative clothing of 1890s to the glitz and glamour of the Roaring Twenties and the mod looks of the Mad Men era, these original vintage posters capture the cultural climate of the past century through fashion.
