The Poster House recently opened it’s doors in New York and is the first museum in the United States dedicated to posters, tracing poster art from the late 1800s to the present.
The Bohemian artist Alphonse Mucha moved to Paris where he became a prominent graphic designer within Art Nouveau, producing many posters for advertising and published books on patterns which were used as a reference for other creatives. His posters featured women to advertise everything from cookies to bicycles, alcohol to rolling papers. During the span of his career, Mucha shifted the advertising landscape.
