Collections & Services

Posters

Original vintage movie posters have a long and fascinating history. An enormous number of different posters were made and there are an almost infinite number of collecting strategies one could follow.

Photographs

The visual history of motion pictures is contained in movie still photography. Every aspect of the movie making process was featured in this medium and each is highly collectible.

Lobby Cards

Lobby cards are a uniquely American creation. They are a hybrid of movie posters and photographs. One early author on the subject described them as akin to antique Persian miniatures.
