We welcome the World Wide Web in 2000!
Our first sighting of the rich vein of vintage poster art happened in New York City. After many years of cherishing the City as a seductive hub of dance, fine art and literature (the latter area being seen as a market for our wares), we were in a kind of seventh heaven on discovering a new world to explore.
That history provided a special delight when, near the outset of our internet days, the New York Times, Summer, 2001, ran an article about us in their digital design head’s up column, The Circuit Section! Though a website was obviously necessary by the year 2000–when, incidentally, we left our day-jobs to become full-time vintage poster dealers–we were far from internet-savvy and several years passed before, with our third and present webmaster, we were fully en route. Our story today (and again, next week) covers the stages of idesirevintageposters.com
