Toronto. I used one of the few (only?) photographic posters under the hammer at Swann Galleries on August 2, 2017. The poster (Sale 2453, Lot 81) advertises glass plates by Jougla, or in French Plaques Jougla. It translates to “Night and Day Jougla plates are used world-wide”. The poster shows various cameras and people in native costumes around a globe partly in day-light and partly in darkness.
Nick Lowry of Swann Auction Galleries sent me an email Monday announcing his auction of Vintage Posters down in NYC would take place in a bit over three weeks. You can enjoy their online catalogue here and consider tossing in a bid to enhance your collections room wall.
While few of the posters feature cameras or photographic items, all are worthy of wall space – take a look!
