About The Poster: Printed in 1924 in a collection edited by the renowned E. KcKnight Kauffer, this mini poster was considered by him to be the best representations of poster art at the time. This particular piece was designed by James Pryde for the February 1899 cover of "the poster". Kauffer wrote: "The poster as a thing may be interesting to the artist as a conception or means of expression: to the historian as a record; to the collector as an object of beauty; but for the business man, who is a producer of commodities, it possesses only one interest: does it sell his goods?"
Kauffer picked what he considered to be the posters which did just that - French, British, American...It mattered not where the posters were from: only that they were graphically perfect, conceptually ideal and overall, spectacular
