200 years of Poster Power

Ever since the printing industry perfected colour printing, the poster in all its forms has been a common part of everyday life. While their use goes back over 200 years, it was the advancement in printing techniques during the mid-19th century that allowed posters and other printed materials to be mass produced and much more widely used. Since then we’ve used posters for everything from advertising, promotion and even as art in their own right.
