Edward Penfield was a pioneering American illustrator and graphic designer whose iconic designs captured the essence of the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Although he was famous in his own time, his work had been largely forgotten in recent decades until a rediscovery of his posters and designs in the 21st century.
Today, his minimalist style, bold outlines, and use of flat areas of color are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. At our poster shop, we are thrilled to offer a collection of Penfield’s most popular designs, including his famous Harper’s Bazaar covers and posters for clients like the American Tobacco Company.
These designs are not only beautiful and iconic, but they also represent an important moment in the history of graphic design and advertising. They offer a glimpse into a time when artists were beginning to experiment with new techniques and styles, and when the poster was becoming an important form of mass communication.
Whether you are a collector, a design enthusiast, or simply appreciate the beauty of classic poster art, we invite you to explore our collection of Edward Penfield posters and rediscover the legacy of one of America’s most talented and influential designers.
