What are Rare and Limited prints?

Our Rare and Limited posters date from 1950 to the present day. They vary in provenance, from historic exhibition posters to hand printed silkscreens.

Rare Posters

Many of the Rare and Limited posters in our archive were originally produced in low numbers, and are now out of print. These factors enhance both their quality and value. The condition of each poster will vary depending upon how it has been stored. Whilst some may have been stored archivally and remain in virtually mint condition, others may show light signs of age due to their unique history.

Our collection of Rare Posters includes original stone lithographs from the prestigious Galerie Mourlot in Paris, a selection of original twentieth-century Rare Theatre Posters from renowned London theatres including the Roundhouse and the Globe, as well as Rare Film Posters showcasing critically-acclaimed films.
