Posters & Cocktails: British Travel Posters

February 15, 2022

Posters & Cocktails returns to delight guests around the world! Take a trip across the pond with your favorite poster-loving duo: Poster House Chief Curator Angelina Lippert & Nicholas Lowry of Swann Auction Galleries. They will be exploring the exciting history of vintage British travel posters, from the romance of Brighton to the drama of the Scottish Highlands. Splash a spot of brandy in your tea and crumpets as these two careen across the British countryside. Along the way, Don Spiro of The Green Fairy Society will share his cocktail recipes that are stiffer than a Brit’s upper lip.  

Posters & Cocktails is generously sponsored by Don Lebowitz & Claudia Wagner.
