When we walked into the room he stared at it in disbelief and then broke out into smiles and a thousand questions, where did you find it, how did you manage to get your hands on this one etc. etc. It was great. A total surprise and he absolutely loves the poster. Same as me. He likes it better in real than just seeing it on a picture. We are sooooooo happy. Thanks Valerie.”  B; Oct., 2006

I'm seated at my little bistro table doing the same. We cannot stop smiling at each other! She with her raised cup of coffee; me with my momentary pauses from the laptop. I'm pretty certain that -- after a 55 year journey -- she knows she is finally home now. As for me, I am convinced of it! Thank you!!!!!!! I must ask: do you find, as the dealer, that you have some "separation" with pieces you have had for a while? Or does it all blur into simple happiness that the work, like an orphan child, has finally found a loving home?Lastly, do you have any framing tips you want to suggest -- both from an aesthetic and conservation point of view? Once again, and from the bottom of my heart -- thanks soo much, Valerie. It's been a delight doing business with you!(I also have the feeling this is only the first of other transactions to follow.): -)”   C; Feb., 2011

  • “My wow excitement today was seeing your and Jim’s I Desire Vintage Posters website...What a fascinating speciality interest and business niche – must be hugely fun too! And, obviously, you’ve achieved a predominant and prestigious reputation in this collection field. Website is most impressive in its organization and the editorial content excellent. Found the commentary informative and engagingly presented. All I read was a pleasure and the collection is awesome in the traditional sense of the word. Just wonder how you can bear to part with such treasured finds. My personal knock-out faves include practically everything in the Art Deco and Surrealist category and lots more beside. For example, found many enchanting posters of whimsical appeal – and actually remember seeing some of the ones from the late 50s onward. Kinda neat also to discover some hitherto unknown poster art contributers – for instance, the 1974 Mostly Mozart Festival created by Jack Bush...."   PC; May, 2012

Manhattan and Nuit Blanche pix/observations are hugely interesting and am now finding myself lusting after things that I hitherto knew nothing about - the world of pochoirs, enchanting children's book illustrations (Pere Castor’s series), not to mention, more fab examples of Vogue covers than I recall ever previously seeing. My want, want quotient is palpably going through the roof! Alas, the reality is that immediate need is to stem the clutter tide of far more mundane acquisitions which have invaded the home premises."   P; Nov., 2012
  • Yes, I will certainly display and love the poster. Thank you again for keeping me updated and for the excellent service.   DT; Nov., 2012
  • "Thanks for your help and advice with this... Yes I do collect typewriter posters as well as... and hope to get more from you in the future when I can, as your website is very good with a large number of designs (with excellent quality of images and detail on condition). It is rare to see such a website. I like a couple of your Art Deco rarities posters and will look at these again in the new year. I try to get a poster or two every couple of months.I have attached an image of the royal typewriter pyramids poster, which is a much more common image than the one on your site, but is a reproduction only and widely copied. The rare original typewriter posters are the ones I am more interested in. I look forward to buying other posters from you in the future."  ND ; Dec., 2012
