I used to know about design history a long time ago, but then I gave it up to work in the media. Then I gave that up too, so now I’ve got plenty of time to write stuff about posters.
Along with MrCrownfolio, I collect some of the posters and graphics that I write about here. But we’re not enormously rich (some error, surely) and so we tend not to buy from dealers or at the big auctions, but snap up bargains on eBay and wherever else we can find them. As a result we have a collection of a quite a lot of middling stuff, a lot of 10″ x 15″s (cheaper to buy, cheaper to frame) and a few real gems.
MrCrownfolio is in charge of the complicated eBay cleverness which delivers some of these bargains, but has sworn never to reveal his secrets on the internet. So don’t ask.
