This print was created by photographing the original turn of the century antique poster in the Century Guild museum archive.
Why does that make our prints special? Century Guild Patronage Prints accurately represent the original turn-of-the-century artwork. Each print is created from a high-resolution image file that we obtained by scanning the original poster in the archive. It means that the color, lines, subtle shading, and other minute details - including any "flaws" in the original artwork - are perfectly captured and left intact. You won't find high-contrast, heavily photoshopped images here. The Century Guild standard demands superior image quality to ensure that the print you receive is a beautiful, miniature version of the original.
Our Patronage Prints feature some of the best posters we've ever had the good fortune to document, and when you purchase these prints you are directly supporting our research and preservation of rare, obscure, arcane, forgotten, and important artworks.
Each print is presented on 11" x 14" archival paper and blindstamped with the Century Guild emblem.
