Pullman Editions explains why the vintage poster market is booming

From rare originals to bespoke new commissions, Pullman Editions shares how to capture the vintage look at home

Pullman EditionsPullman Editions designs, commissions and publishes striking original posters which capture the enduring appeal of Art Deco. Their newly-commissioned posters feature glamorous travel destinations around the world, winter sports in the European Alps, and the world’s greatest historic automobiles on the road and track. 

The last few decades have seen enormous growth in the vintage poster market, with prices growing steadily as demand increases for a product with only a finite supply. In the field of vintage Winter Sports posters for example, good posters from the 1920s and 1930s comfortably achieve five-figure sums at auction, with the finest posters reaching as much as £30,000 on the rare occasions they become available, excluding them to all but the wealthiest collectors.

Posters – once described as ‘a visual shout’ – proved an attractive, effective means of promotion and ‘at-a-glance’ display. Poster display was never more inspired than in the Art Deco period when posters, largely produced by Swiss and French railway companies, graced station platforms and billboards to persuade affluent and adventurous travellers to enjoy the newly-fashionable modern luxury travel. The vast majority of these classic posters were destroyed when replaced by other posters – it is the handful of surviving vintage posters that today fetch such dramatic prices.

Pullman Editions’ modern take on these Art Deco classics provide a more vibrant and creative way to decorate your home. Evoking memories of holidays and special occasions, their posters also make super original gifts. Having recognised the demand for stylish, decorative yet affordable posters, Pullman Editions is committed to designing and publishing new artworks to provide a modern alternative to original Art Deco posters produced ‘in-period’. Executed by leading poster artists, each with their own unique signature style, their editions combine originality with the quintessential heritage and dramatic imagery of vintage posters.

Each poster is approximately 97 x 65cm (38 x 26in), and they are supplied unframed in robust tubes, which can be shipped worldwide. A framing service is also offered for personal shoppers at the Chelsea gallery.
