Poster & Display Art

In the silent era, as well as today, a poster is used to advertise and create a buzz for a film.  In the 1920s some of the most beautiful stone-litho art came off the presses in and around Cleveland, Ohio.

Today, posters and lobby cards from this era are sought after as collector and investment items.  To collect silent era posters on big name stars such as Valentino, Fairbanks, Pickford, Chaplin, one must have very deep pockets.

Shown here are some samples of the poster and lobby art produced for Valentino's films.
