Early in the 1920s Charles Mather, who worked for his family’s Chicago printing house, the Mather Company, took an idea brought to him by one of the firm’s salesmen, Charles Howard Rosenfeld. What Rosenfeld proposed was a series of posters whose focus was to give workers incentive to work better and to work harder. Mather called these prints, “Constructive Organization Posters.” These posters were made to be placed on office and factory walls and were expected to inspire workers to do their best. Mather sold his posters by subscription and produced more than 300 varieties between 1923 and 1929.In 1925 Rosenfeld and another employee… Read More

Artwork by James McMullen. Archivally mounted on artboard, FINE.

""Mule Bone: A Comedy of Negro Life is a 1930 play by American authors Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston. The process of writing the play led Hughes and Hurston, who had been close friends, to sever their relationship. Mule Bone was not staged until 1991, when it was produced in New York City by the Lincoln Center Theater. ""Hughes and Hurston began writing Mule Bone in March 1930. They wanted to write a comedy about African-American life that didn't consist of racial stereotypes. They decided to base the plot on a folktale which Hurston had collected in Florida during one of… Read More

Description:
Finland: Trinty Production, 1950. 1st Edition . No Binding. Fine. An original and extremely rare Finnish A2 one-sheet film poster for the Documentary Film "Savage Africa" a.k.a. "Congolaise" from 1950. Commissioned by the French Government originally to make a record of the native tribes in French Equatorial Africa, it was controversially edited to present as an exhibition of female nudity and gorilla hunting. As such, possibly one of the very first Blaxploitation movies ever. The film was screened for the first time in Finland in November 1950 and there were no further theatrical releases following its initial run. The poster is an offset print made by Kartapalvelu Oy of Finland, dated 1950 and with the artist's (printed) signature at the right about midway. Measures 23.5" x 16" approx. Pinholes to each of the corners, some minor creasing at the edges in places but overall in outstanding condition, as a cinema-used item it has to be Near Mint. A superb example… Read More

Description:
Finland: Columbia Pictures Corporation, 1953. 1st Edition . No Binding. Very Good. First Printing. A vintage, original, and quite unique Finnish cinema-used poster for the first screening in Finland of the movie, SIREN OF BAGDAD starring Paul Henreid. The film was first screened in Finland in 1953 with no further subsequent releases. Approximate size is 60 cm by 40 cm, standard Finnish A2 format. SIGNS OF USE: the poster has centre-folds in both directions and pinholes to the corners and centre - quite large holes at the bottom corners. To the verso of the poster is a large original drawing for another movie - The Red Beret. That film was screened in Finland in 1954. Unfortunately the drawing is not signed and therefore likely to be the work of a cinema employee pressed to come up with something due to the absence of a real poster for an imminent screening. At the bottom is written (in Finnish) "Tuesday 8pm" suggesting it was actually used. Overall, in VG condition and the drawing on the… Read More
