A poster isn't necessarily the sum of its visual parts. Many of the world's best posters (and even some of the not-so-great posters!) have amazing backstories. Salacious happenings, intrigue, scandal, sex, censorship - you name it, posters have got it!
In the months leading up to Poster House's grand opening, we will be featuring a curated selection of posters in our window on 23rd Street. Rather than focus on their artistic merits or historic relevance, we will instead highlight the little-know, seldom-talked-about moments in history that helped shape them. The things your art history professor didn't want you to know. The hot takes. The gossip.
