"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."

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!"

The market has also strengthened for many category niches such as travel, sports, and war posters, which continue to yield auction records despite the recession.
