"Jim Lapides, of the International Poster gallery in Boston, pursues the relatively rare Object Posters that had their beginnings in Germany just after the turn of the century and flowered later in Switzerland during the 1930s and 1940s."

Where Boston

The Editor's "A" List -  "International Poster Gallery should not be missed. Especially not this month when Larger than Life: The Swiss Object Poster 1919 - 1959'  is featured at the gallery through Oct. 22. Considered by many the final phase of the golden age of the lithographic poster, the pieces transform everyday objects into giant icons. If you're normally intimidated by galleries, go anyways, the staff here is smart as hell, but very low key."

Boston Magazine - Best of Boston 1996 & 1998


Best of Boston 1998 Award:  "Why? Because no one else can hook you up with an original Art Nouveau Mucha on silk, or a first-edition movie poster from Stanley Kubrick's Lolita."


Best of Boston 1996 Award:  "For fine original vintage posters from all over the world, this shop is a great choice for the collector or even the first-time buyer."

Art without Intimidation: Four Fields for Newcomers - "This [the vintage poster] is probably the one collector's market with the highest potential for modest near-term appreciation, in part because corporations are starting to collect posters."

AGraphic Look at the Soviet Hard Sell  by Christine Temin - "When Red Saw Green: Soviet Advertising and Film Posters of the Twenties  is a fascinating show at the Mass College of Art's Huntington Gallery. Organized by Jim Lapides, owner of the International Poster Gallery on Newbury Street, the exhibition focuses on the New Economic Policy of the 1920s, when the economy was a disaster and the Bolsheviks were forced to allow some private enterprise... The Mass Art show is a fine addition to a short list [of recent shows on Soviet design in the Boston area.] It's also a must for anyone interested in the history of conveying messages through pictures...These masterpieces of 20th century design were intended to be used and tossed. Instead, they've ended up...on museum walls."

Posters on Parade by Jim Waltzer - "Russian posters of WWII and the Bolshevik Revolution (1917 - 1921) are noteworthy for their powerful graphic design and savvy propaganda - and as relative bargains. 'We have museum quality pieces going for under $1,000,' says Jim Lapides, whose Boston-based International Poster Gallery will begin a six week Soviet exhibition at the end of February...The International Poster Gallery show, War and Revolution, will combine American World War I posters with those of the Boshevik period and its aftermath."

"The Art of Propaganda" by Cate McQuaid - "Buy War Bonds. Uncle Sam Wants You. Before the advent of television, posters played a large part in rallying the citizenry in times of crisis. The same was true in the Soviet Union, where citizens were spurred to action as an army of workers, putting their noses to the grindstone for the state. 'Revolution by Design', now up at the International Poster Gallery, shows off some of the work of the USSR's best artists and graphic designers."

With a collection of more than 5,000 posters, the Gallery is the only one in the country to specialize in Italian commercial art."
