Our poster spotlight blog features news and historic information related to vintage posters. We try to find events and anniversaries that we can frame around the art that we love.
Our background: we have been buying and selling original posters for over thirty years. In 1984, we became one of the first auction houses to specialize in poster-only auctions. We held our first auction 1984 in Germany (Jörg Weigelt Auktionen). Since then, we have published over 100 catalogs internationally. In 1995, we established an outlet in the San Francisco Bay Area where we have been conducting our U.S. auctions (PosterConnection, Inc.).
The posters in our auctions always come from a wide array of subject areas and have dated from as early as the 1850s through contemporary classics from the 1990s. While most of our catalogs present a mixed bag of international posters related to advertising, travel, art & culture and propaganda, we have published specialized catalogs in the areas of film, rock & roll, military & politics, photography and books & ephemera. All of our U.S. catalogs have been published in full-color and the highest printing quality. Catalogs are available in full for online viewing.
In 2000, we were the first to allow live online participation in poster auctions. You can now participate in our San Francisco sales live in person, by absentee ballot or directly from the comfort of your home from your personal computer. Our annual auctions are scheduled during the months of April and October in San Francisco. We added annual Summer and Winter Clearance Sales that are usually scheduled for March and September.
Whether you are a novice or an established collector, we invite you to contact us if you have any questions about our auctions or are interested in buying or selling vintage posters.
We maintain an online gallery, sell posters by appointment only in Clayton, California, offer professional appraisals and publish news and events related to poster art on various social media sites. We are members of the International Vintage Poster Dealers Association (IVPDA).
