Art Nouveau Poster Art c.1900 Ault Wibourg Ink company lot x 6 printsBrian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
(Arts & Crafts- Art Nouveau poster Art- Ink & Graphic Arts Company).
Issued Cincinnati, c.1895-1900 by Ault & Wiborg Printing Inks.
Mostly anonymous, only two images signed within the plate. Nice printing press and graphic design work, each worthy of framing for display.
Very attractive lot of six (6) beautiful small color posters issued by this once important national color ink company.
The company hired accomplished artists and designers to create posters for them which were displayed in public and also sold separately to collectors. This rare smaller reduced version was issued by the company at the very beginning of the 20th century, offered in a modest small run as a specimen color plate book to collectors.
All are visually attractive, several display quite light or minor old damp staining along the side margins. Any age flaws or small condition issues are, for our eyes, easy to forgive or overlook. The slight flaws enhance the visual appeal by making the example visually unique.
