Vintage art posters have a nostalgic quality that’s unlike any other type of artwork. If you’ve been curious about starting your own collection, it can be hard to figure out how to separate authentic vintage art posters from reproductions. Be sure to take a closer look at the photos. A close-up will often reveal a few common tells of reproductions, such as blurry text in the margins or signs of pixilation—especially with art posters dated pre-World War II. Take care to search for signs of age, particularly fold lines, creases, spots, and discolorations, which often indicate authentic vintage art posters. And remember to always consider the source when shopping for vintage art posters. It’s more likely that you’ll find an authentic poster when you shop at places that sell from collectors—so you can determine where the poster originally came from.
