Posters – Art of the People in the Street and in the Stations

 

Litfass-Saeulen

 

I have selected posters of the different countries represented on my layout which would have appeared - in the streets, on station platforms, on walls - in June of 1914.  I photograph reproductions of the posters on 35mm color negative film, framing each one so that the images on the negatives, in 1/87th scale, are of precisely the dimensions of the original as it appeared full size.  Then, a sheet of contact prints is made from the negatives. The resulting miniature posters are of the finest possible quality at a very reasonable price because one can produce 37 different posters on a single contact sheet.

The posters on the German ”Litfasssaeulen” – the advertising pillars erected by Dr, Litfass in the nineteenth century - are first assembled to fit the pillar. A color copy is then made of the assembly on paper thin enough to be wrapped easily round the column.
