What exactly are Art Deco posters? This term was first applied to a new style of design around the 1920’s and 1930’s, first seen in Paris it soon spread its designer wings across Europe and later the USA. The style is best known for its geometric colours and strong, vibrant colours. The vivid style screams of the optimism of the 1920’s and the pure escapism of the 1930’s and left its mark on the design world with a resurgence in popularity in the 1960’s.

The posters from this era are now highly collectable and the prints we sell make stunning wall art pieces. The art deco trends can be recognised on the posters by the symbols of speed, seen in the Rocketeer poster or the excessive exuberance of era seen in energetic jazz, short skirts short cut hair and controversial dances.

Another great style is the popular Art Nouveau poster prints epitomised by our beautiful Alphonse Mucha posters, otherwise known as Alfons Maria Mucha, this Czech painter was well known for his many paintings, posters, illustrations and advertisements, we have more than 8 of these gorgeous Art nouveau great designs.
