Originality and authenticity is the over-riding issue. On the topic of what to look for, the answer is simple: chose a visually exciting image that appeals to you and one you’d want to see again and again. No matter how valuable the market deems a poster to be, if it doesn’t excite your eye, what is the point ? As in the car world “buy what you love”. What works for each collector is different; the “focus” may be your favorite car, races you attended, your birth year, brand loyalty, etc.
The second poster, the 1950’s Porsche Factory Mille Miglia commemorative, by the graphic design genius, Erich Strenger, is printed in offset lithography for the base colors, along with letterpress imprint in black. This poster measures 23” x 33”. Both pieces have stood the test of time and today represent exceptional examples of dynamic art, design, and printing.
Whether for your den, office, home, or garage environment, the authentic vintage poster is a beautiful source of visual enjoyment, as well as a fine investment. What an artistic way to display our automotive passion!
