The International Vintage Poster Dealers Association (IVPDA), a non-profit association, was founded in 1996 by a group of highly respected poster dealers from North America and Europe. The Association was created to inform and educate the public, collectors and other buyers and to help promote the appreciation of the wide variety of vintage posters from around the globe.
The Association, with more than 80 members, provides strict guidelines to ensure the authenticity of the posters they offer for sale and to promote ethical and fair business practices. Our Members have many years of professional experience and are respected throughout the arts community for their knowledge and integrity. Members that display the IVPDA logo have passed a series of stringent membership requirements. When buying an original vintage poster look for Members displaying the IVPDA logo and buy with confidence.
The International Vintage Poster Dealers Association boasts a worldwide membership of over 80 highly professional dealers offering original vintage posters. We may have different specialties, however, we are all committed to interacting with the public in a number of ways. We are here to share our passion for posters as well as to make the Public aware of the great variety of posters and the opportunities available to you by using the resources of our Association.
Many Members in our Association in Europe as well as North America have more than 3 decades of experience in this fascinating field. We are experts in the general field of vintage posters as well as in our own specialties such as the belle epoque period, 1920's Art Deco, Italian movies and many other areas.
We want you to become familiar with the wide variety of subject matters, artistic styles and price ranges that are available. We accomplish this by participating in shows and exhibitions, through our individual web-sites as well as the IVPDA web site and at our Galleries. We give lectures on posters, our Members publish books and articles and we curate or assist in curating shows of posters in Museums around the world.
