The Inland printer was a successful magazine at the turn of the century and still exists in Chicago. It is now known as the American Printer and Lithographer. The Inland Printer promoted new ideas and technology that were influencing the popular arts of the times. Among the many well known illustrators to work for The Inland Printer were Will Bradley and J.C. Leyendecker. The journal began in 1883 as a 24 page publication in Chicago and by 1900, was a 200 page monthly magazine.
We are fortunate to have this original poster which promoted the cover of the original magazine in our collection. The artist, Joseph Pierre Birren was a painter who painted in Chicago and in Laguna Beach, California. In 1927, he moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico. A member of the Chicago Art Club, Laguna Beach Art Association, North Shore Art Association, and the Chicago Gallery Association. His work is in the collection of the Los Angeles Museum, Union League Club (Chicago), and the Pasadena Art Institute. A beautiful and original piece of his early work we have never had or seen before, rare and uncommon. The poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing. We only have this one.
