Posters The introduction of color lithography initiated a craze for poster collecting in Paris towards the end of the 19th century. Interest in posters was so great that posters were torn, usually after dark, from the hoardings where they hung for transport to homes where displayed. Interest in posters has never waned and remains high to this day. We offer a variety of books on posters including some of history’s most important.
Elbert Hubbard and the Roycroft Press The Roycroft press served as an outlet for Hubbard’s writing and those of many of his favorite authors. It also helped to familiarize the public with the Arts and Crafts movement. Although the work of the press did not achieve the high artistic and quality standards of Morris’ English Kelmscott press, Roycroft publications fostered interest in American printing, bookbinding and graphic arts.
