Posters, like the fire department have a long history. Originally posters were made of wood or metal until the 1880s when the 3 stone lithograph process was created allowing posters to be printed in any color ushering in the age of fine art in posters. Although the stone lithograph has been replaced the artistry remains, and FD prints has a collection of firefighter posters ready to display in your home, office, or fire station.
FD Prints firefighter poster ideas are based on the art deco style. Art Deco poster popularity began shortly after WWI in the 1910s and continue to flourish to this day. The concept of Art Deco was first introduced during the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris in 1925.
Art Deco has been described as a decorative arts movement that illustrates the concept of modernism, luxury, elegance and sophistication. The designs are emphasized with the use of daring sharp, high contrast and vivid colors, as well as geometric elements. Many great vintage posters were created during this period and its influence can be seen in posters from US Government agencies as well as Federal Art Projects, many advertising posters, railway stations, ocean liners, Broadway shows, and now firefighting art posters.
