About Catawiki's poster auction
Modern posters, pieces of printed paper with a graphical and textual element, are a relatively recent phenomenon. The increase in the prevalence of posters in the mid 19th Century came about as a result of the advancement in lithographic printing techniques, which enabled the mass-production of large, inexpensive images. At the same time, advertisers began to market mass-produced consumer goods to a growing population, particularly in urban areas. The format of the poster was well-suited to such advertising, allowing brands to promote their products to consumers in an eye-catching and visually engaging way. Posters are now an integral part of modern-life, whether it is an advertisement for a new type of perfume, your favourite band in concert, or a political campaign poster. Among the most memorable and iconic posters, and particularly popular among collectors, are those promoting films - these posters are now instantly recognisable and continually popular.
