In the days before radio, television and computers, posters were designed by famous artists as the premier form of advertising. They were the way to reach large audiences and thus also used by governments for propaganda as well as public messages. These craftsmen had to know skills of lithography. They also had to understand the challenge of creating a message with a single graphic and or phrase that could capture your emotions.
This is an "Original" lithograph print which refers to the first running or original printing inspired by vintage travel posters. These works of art became collectors items when poster enthusiasts would sneak out at night and remove the posters of their favorite artist with wet sponges. They would then dry and preserve them.
These collections eventually started being featured in galleries around the world. By the late 1800's poster art began to spread around the globe and exhibitions have been held practically every year since.
By the 1920’s many artists dedicated their life's work solely to this new median and a new breed of artist was born. "The Graphic Designer".
Like the craftsmen and artists who created and preserved vintage posters, at KÜHL we also have a passion for great design as well as the outdoor experience.
