living for posters

last friday i went for a random walk through town and came across a small vintage poster gallery that i had never heard of before, one of the people whom i spoke to turned out to be none other than celebrated poster designer gielijn escher who very kindly signed a copy of his book for me

gielijn (who is indeed related to the other ‘escher’) began his career at an early age and having even worked himself as a bill poster he has amassed an enormous collection including many pre-war german artists such as ‘lucian bernhard’ ‘hans rudi erdt’ and ‘ludwig hohlwein’, i actually have an appointment with him next week to acquire some (more recent) dutch posters from his vast collection, great news :)
