So much cool and hip art to choose from within this range of stunning midcentury modern typography prints by Bold Modern.
Of course, midcentury modern artwork isn’t difficult to find these days. I recently featured the wonderful Deltanova artwork on the site and you might also recall the midcentury advertising posters at King & McGaw too. Plenty of one-offs as well at various retailers. But this range is different.
The Bold Modern range is all about classic typography of the era. Of course, many have accompanying images that also catch the eye. But the typography is the selling point here.
So much to choose from too, with examples from across the globe and across various years over the middle of the 20th century.
The images used are taken from iconic book covers, concert posters, exhibition posters, album artwork, film posters, sporting events, magazine covers and far more niche examples, like vintage matchbox designs, for example.
Over 300 in total to browse, enjoy and if they take your fancy, enjoy. Not the cheapest examples out there, but the quality is a big selling point of the prints. No low-quality copies here. The prints here offer crisp image quality on all print sizes and ‘precise typography’ down to the ‘very last obsessive detail’. Each one is overseen by the company rather than being printed by an external company.
Get one in your chosen frame and show it off with pride. There’s every chance it could pass for an original piece of art.
As I said, so many to choose from, which makes it hard to demonstrate the depth of the range here. I would recommend making a drink, taking a few minutes out and having a good browse. You won’t regret it.
But I have picked out a few of my favourites to give you a hint of what the range is all about.
At the head of the page, you will see the dust jacket of the much sought-after Modern Houses and below that, Ella Fitzgerald’s 1968 concert poster and Polish master designer Janusz Rapnicki’s 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games print.
Continuing down, you’ll see Paul Rand’s design for the IBM Pavilion in the mid-1960s, one of five images for the Schweizer Mustermesse Basel, a 1959 cover for Holiday Magazine, Paul Schuitema’s design for the 1965 Mondrian exhibition at The Hague, an Alfa Romeo car promotion at the Montreal Expo of 1967, Canadian designer Stuart Ash’s work for the Art Gallery of Ontario brochure of 1974 and a Christopher Hill for British Transport poster.
Different sizes are available and note that the images are unframed. If you want one, prices are from around £150.
