Postermania is meant to be a fun and simple little blog that is a pleasant walk down memory lane for me, and hopefully, for those who happen to stop by. I also desire this blog to be a sort of visual historical record of the many awesome personality posters that have graced many a wall over the years. While most of the emphasis is on posters from yesteryear, that isn’t to say that a recent pose won’t ever be highlighted.
This blog is a free personal blog, there is no organization or business behind it. As a personal blog, you will probably get a mixture of of personal memories, thoughts, opinions and facts about many of the posters (and stuff that is kinda related) that I feature. Also, please be aware that I make no money from this blog, even though you will probably see ads on some of the pages, WordPress takes whatever revenue comes in from them. Also note, that I have no control over the content of the ads, nor their placement and if you find something offensive, please contact WordPress directly and voice your concerns.
I originally intended this blog to focus solely on the posters released by Pro Arts (the company that gave us the mega-selling red bikini pose of Farrah Fawcett in 1976), but while doing research for material to be included, I ran across so many cool poses from different companies, that I simply had to expand my focus. I have no idea which posters that I feature are US only releases and which ones were released only to foreign markets and to be honest, I am not really all that concerned about where they were sold or originated from; a cool poster is still a cool poster! Also, along that same line of thinking, I realize some posters I will feature might have been promotional items only, maybe used in store displays or as a prize or premium in a giveaway and they were never meant to be sold in stores. If I know for a fact a poster was non commercial (not produced to be sold to the public), I will make sure to state that. It is my desire give as much info as possible about each poster, and I make every effort to provide correct info, but sadly, I can and do make mistakes and when I am alerted to them, I make corrections as quickly as possible.
Now here is some important stuff to share:
- I am merely a fan of these giant photos; I am not an expert and have never and will never portray myself as such.
- I am not running a business, I do not buy, sell or trade posters.
- I can not give you an appraisal on your posters.
Anyway, thank you for reading this little blurb and if you have any extra info to add about a poster I have covered, please feel free to contact me. I enjoy giving at much information about a poster as possible!
