Shop through history at poster fair

Are your surroundings in need of a bit of sprucing up? There’s an option at the ready.

You can easily add a bit of graphic punch with a vintage poster – and you can shop among thousands of options next month in Manhattan.

The International Vintage Poster Fair – billed as the world’s oldest (26 years) and largest event of its kind – will be held as a featured section of the Pier Antique Show, on Pier 94 between 12th Avenue and 55th Street along the Hudson River.

The fair, which will indeed showcase thousands of vintage posters (starting at $100), will offer selections in a variety of topics from the 1890s through the 1980s.

Gail Chisholm, owner of Chisholm Gallery in Manhattan, and David Pollack, owner of David Pollack Vintage Posters in Wilmington, Del., are the show’s producers.

And collectors will want to note that the International Vintage Poster Dealers Association (IVPDA) has vetted all the posters featured at the fair for authenticity.

Admission is $10 per day, with the fair running from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on opening day and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 15.
