I Love My Job
The first really nice week of late spring and rather than sitting inside, I went on a little trip to the flea market. Well, not just any market but the daddy of them all. Three days, 6,000 sellers, sunrise to sunset, walking fields enjoying seeing what was out there. It is always fun seeing the weird and the wacky, things I love and things that I guess somebody else might love. But the purpose of the trip was buying posters and I thought I would put up a show of every piece I bought. It is interesting the random nature of what I found, from an amazingingly rare Edward Penfield advertising poster for Galakton baby food, ca 1897, to a 1983 Cyndi Lauper poster and everything in between. I found war posters, advertising posters, a French cabaret poster by Gruau and much more. I hope you will enjoy this random assortment. One piece I especially like is a 1909 National Bowling Tournament poster for Brunswick, a great American poster that I have seen illustrated and never owned.
