Vintage Posters Only owner Sam Johnson discovered his interest in vintage posters while living in Paris in the early 1990s.
On seeing the vintage posters that adorned the walls of Parisian cafes, restaurants and shops, ‘The Poster King’ or P.K., as he’s known, started his own collection which soon grew into a gallery of works that can now be viewed at his Melbourne shop front or through his website.
Every poster is a work of art and has a story to tell, from the artist who created it, to the product it is selling. So what’s so special about Vintage Posters? Most importantly, these are the original posters, meaning they are from the original print runs. The posters reflect a particular moment in time and essentially document our history. Take a look into the collection at Vintage Posters Only and you will be instantly transported to Paris in the 1930’s sipping on Bitter Camparis, or fast forward to the ‘70’s where you will find yourself lacing up your Bally flats.
The Poster King’s collection is unlike any other with an array of categories to select from. From advertisements for bicycles to shoes, wine to a Joan Miro art exhibition, Moulin Rouge girls to television sets – everything you can think of and more.
Vintage posters are great for decorating any space and are a guaranteed talking point in your home or at your place of business. Given there is such a wide range of images, art styles and themes to choose from, it is possible to find your perfect vintage poster.
