NEW YORK, NY.- Poster Auctions International’s Rare Posters Auction #82 on Sunday, November 15th will feature masterpieces and rarities from over two centuries of poster design. Top artists include Cappiello, Chéret, Haring, Mucha, Steinlen and Toulouse-Lautrec.

Jack Rennert, president of Poster Auctions International, Inc., said, “In a year with so much upheaval, I am pleased to return to some sense of normalcy with our upcoming auction—and the catalogue is back. As always, collectors can expect to find a range of masterful works, including highly sought-after items and beloved images.”

The auction will begin with two sections of travel posters for the United Kingdom and Italy – a perfect balm for current travel restrictions. Major works include William H.
