American Poster Illustrations 1920-1950
A historical Documentation of fascinating Posters around the cultural, social and economic activities and also some political statements from 1920 -1950 in the USA. The focus on this Project are the artistic aspects.
While researching vintage graphics for different projects, we discovered some really awesome Posters. Most of them were WPA (Work Progress Administration) Posters, from the years between 1935-1943.
Nearly all Illustrated Posters are “Public Domain” images with a very high resolution, but a lot of them were damaged. So we retouched thousands of scratches, hairs and dust particles, renewed paper structures and optimized some of these posters for the Book resolution. We also redesigned some motifs completely and made the also printable for higher resolutions.
