International Poster Gallery has Closed after 30 Years
International Poster Gallery, a preeminent source for rare and important original posters, has closed after 30 years due to owner Jim Lapides’ retirement. It has been a wonderful run, and we thank you for making it all possible. We have so enjoyed helping you find posters that are meaningful and beautiful, that excite your passions, and that help make your homes and offices a reflection of who you are.
We are continuing to deal posters privately until further notice, although please note there may be a delay in response times. Please feel free to explore our website for past exhibitions and informative pages about poster history as our extensive experience has served collectors well over the many years.

What Customers Say...
“This niche gallery stocks thousands of vintage posters from around the world. Thousands. The posters span the globe, with themes ranging from food and drink to travel to political propaganda. They are all there for the browsing, though it's easier to scroll through the online archive, which also offers all kinds of useful information and tips for would-be collectors.”
Frommer's Top Star Rating ("Exceptional")
“My favorite Boston art gallery—I can’t pass by without stopping in—specializes in French, Swiss, Soviet, and Italian vintage posters. Pieces from elsewhere, including original works, round out the massive collection, which the gracious staff can help you explore. Be sure to check out the website. Poster prices start at $100, with most between $500 and $2,500.”
“We have been fortunate enough to have worked with the IPG team for a few years, slowly but surely adding to our ski poster collection. The staff have always been extremely helpful – from sourcing new posters to advice on safekeeping our posters. Absolutely wonderful service and expertise – thank you!”
“As amazing an experience as visiting a museum...we didn't want to leave! The owner was extremely warm, welcoming, knowledgeable and passionate about his field (as were his employees). We were grateful for his willingness to share his extensive knowledge and time, feeling as if we were guests rather than potential customers. We are thrilled with the poster we purchased. It's a must-go destination!”
“When an email appears in my inbox from IPG it's a good feeling, which is unusual! I always look forward to seeing what new treasures they have acquired.”
“Fantastic selection, beautifully presented, interesting exhibitions. This is one of the finest poster galleries in the world. The proprietor, Jim, is supremely knowledgeable, and knows his enormous inventory cover to cover. The posters are extremely well curated, and very fairly priced. They have never steered me wrong as I build my collection.”
“I purchased a poster from IPG that quite honestly I didn't think existed. Only they could have a near perfect condition poster from a 1927 European air race!”
“Don't be intimidated—this gallery is wonderful and fairly priced. The gallery is just exploding with bright colored, finely detailed posters from all around the world. I had a great experience here and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for original vintage posters. Their website is always up to date with their current posters and very easy to search.”
