Choosing the Right Frame for a Vintage Poster

Chances are that you have  spent a lot of time choosing a vintage poster for your home, especially if it is your first one. This means that you will probably spend an even longer amount of time trying to pick out a frame. You may be asking:

  • Should the frame be simple or detailed?
  • Is a thick or thin frame more appropriate?
  • Should the color of the frame match the colors in the poster or my décor?

Which Frame is Right for Your Vintage Poster?

You will quickly find that some frames can be as costly as your vintage poster. While you can splurge and spend a small fortune if you choose, you don’t really have to. The poster is so eye-catching that it will become such a focal point that few people will even notice the frame anyway. This does not mean that the frame should be an afterthought though.

Thin frames are nice, but wide ones can look great too, as long as they are simple. You do not want to draw attention away from the poster

Vintage Posters Explode in Production

A three-stone lithographic process was developed by Jules Chéret. This allowed artists to achieve nearly every color imaginable by using only yellow, red and blue stones. It was a difficult process but remarkable texture and color intensity with nuances and sublime transparencies were able to be achieved.

It was in Paris during the 1870s that poster production became the primary means for mass communication throughout Europe and America.

The Streets of Milan, Paris, and Berlin were decorated with  advertising art ,and by 1890, the poster craze came into full swing.

Are You Looking for an Extremely Rare Vintage Poster?

If you are on a mission to find an extremely rare vintage stone litho–print  either for yourself  or someone else, you will want to explore our Les Affiches Illustrees collection. These mini-posters were first printed by Imp. Chaix in Paris in 1896. Only 1,025 prints of each one were made.

How Jules Chéret Influenced the Future of the Vintage Poster

You will notice that Jules Chéret is the artist for each vintage poster in this collection. With a very limited education, he started a three-year apprenticeship at the age of 13. In addition to his training, he spent much time in Paris museums, studying techniques of artists.

After spending time in London for more training, he returned to France, and began creating vivid posters for theaters, music halls and cabarets. Soon his work expanded to soaps, cosmetics, beverages, perfumes and even pharmaceutical products.

A Poster Original for the Book Lover

Do you have someone in your life that seems to read a book a day? This is someone who’s idea of a perfect Saturday night consists of a bowl of popcorn and either a new release or something unique, perhaps from the foreign or history section of the library. Yes, these are individuals who actually do have a library card, because electronic readers just can’t replace the look, feel and smell of a paperback book.

If this sounds like someone you know, why not consider buying them a literary poster original for their birthday, anniversary or the next holiday? Of course, you do not need a special occasion though!

Why a Poster Original?

Buying readers a book is generally impossible. You do not know what they have read, and if you ask for ideas, they will likely just make a mental note to check them out or buy them in the near future. A  literary poster ( original)  makes a unique and thoughtful gift .

Here at Nancy Steinbock Posters, you will find rare pieces, such as “The Race of the Swift” from 1905 and “The Peter Patter Book” from 1916. For ordering information, please email
