Unveiled: International Vintage Poster Fair—Seven Deadly Sins
The International Vintage Poster Fair, the world's oldest and largest sale and exposition of original vintage posters, returns to Chicago March 30–April 1 at the Chicago Cultural Center. More than 10,000 posters dating from the 1890s through the 1980s will be on display and available for purchase throughout the weekend. World-class exhibitors hailing from six continents will offer posters advertising food and liquor, films, travel and transportation, and international events in styles that range from Victorian and Art Nouveau to Art Deco and Modernist.
This year's featured exhibition, "Seven Deadly Sins," presents the famous vices—wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony—through a selection of wickedly lovely vintage posters. All posters available at the fair have been vetted for authenticity by the International Vintage Poster Dealers Association (IVPDA), guaranteeing that all posters are originals.
