A feature of our vintage poster collection which we’ve ignored until now, may have surfaced at last, on account of the hard times having defined our days by Covid-19 pandemic. The vast production of food and beverage posters not only announce a product to enjoy, but they revel in the plenitude of modern life. Such a display turns a corner now, by which want becomes rampant.
Of course the past century experienced starvation. But not often in the zone where lithographic advertising has flourished. This year’s bad news has changed all that. Therefore, as we make a survey of works not often in the spotlight, we realize the bounties in a new perspective.
Our first instance, then, becomes a poster boy of sunny times and the produce easily being allowed to distribute.
