L’Affichiste, Montreal’s only vintage poster gallery, is a space in which posters are given the space and the prestige they deserve. Graced with floor to ceiling windows, painted floors and Victorian detail, the gallery is housed in a bank building dating from the late 1890s. In this wonderful light-filled locale our collection can be appreciated peacefully - whether with a steaming cup of coffee, or a late afternoon glass of wine - and we will be happy to welcome you into our wonderful world of vintage posters.
Posters are one of the last remaining artifacts of advertising and marketing that we have from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
We specialize primarily in posters from the Belle Epoque through Art Deco periods, (although some of our pieces don’t easily fall into any category), and we do occasionally take pieces on consignment. Email or phone (514 656 3301) for more information - we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about pricing or sizing for any of the pieces listed on our website. Please see the contact page for our hours and FAQs.
