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 personal blog and in it I will share not just as much information about the poster as I can, but also offer up personal memories, thoughts and opinions. I make no money from this blog (but you will probably see ads on the pages, just know that I have no control over the content of those ads, nor their placement) and write here just for the fun of it.
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 will be the first to admit that some of the poses highlighted here might never have been available in the US, but instead populated the foreign markets, but I am not too concerned about where they were sold or originated from; a cool poster is still a cool poster!
When possible, I will give as much information about the poster as possible; size, title, catalog number, year published, etc. 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!
