Iconic Posters from a Time When Flight and Art Made Magic
Travel art "has become a major area of collecting," said Jim Lapides, owner of the poster gallery, which furnished some of the images for Hühne's book. That's in part because it wistfully evokes a time when travel was mysterious and privileged, Lapides said, beginning with the advent of the Orient Express - which coincided with the dawn of the stylish advertising poster. "That sort of thing had to be promoted, and the poster was colorful and practical," Lapides said. "It could be put right on the platform."

International Poster Gallery Celebrates Summer Travels With Vintage Posters
"Paced by a fine collection of airline posters, the exhibition's headliner is Bermuda - 5 Hours by Air PAA by Adolph Treidler c. 1937, which depicts a handsome young couple heading out on their bicycles under a star-filled sky. Overhead, a Pan Am flying boat is silhouetted by the full moon as a sailboat glides by in the harbor. Inspiring honeymooners to the island for decades, this romantic poster is one of the earliest to advertise Pan Am's New York to Bermuda route, which became the initial stop on the world's first transatlantic route."

"Motivational Peeking" by Sarah Hagman
"The last time someone called you a tightwad, it probably wasn't meant to be uplifting. In the Roaring '20s, it was a different story. This month, International Poster Gallery displays recently discovered motivational prints from Chicago printing firm Mather and Company, which took a page from the government's World War I poster campaign to boost workplace morale. Find slogans that once graced factory walls, like the aforementioned "Be a Tightwad," "Hot Heads Never Do Cool Thinking," "Hoping Beats Moping," and the motto above, inspired by aviator Charles Lindbergh's pioneering 33-hour solo flight across the Atlantic. Find some encouragement at "Who Said 'Can't'?" on view through November 15."

"History's Jackpot: Investing in Antique Collectibles" by Craig Gottlieb
"As an investment, antique posters are an underratted genre. Ask Jim Lapides what he thinks about investing in vintage posters, and he'll tell you the timing couldn't be better... Prices are so reasonable that for very little money, a poster collector can own a significant piece of art history. Try spending just a few thousand dollars for the top art in another art genre!"
