A Century of Dartmouth Winter Carnival Posters

Swann’s February 8th Vintage Posters auction includes 16 posters from Dartmouth’s annual Winter Carnival, which began in 1911. The sale includes posters from the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. Each year, a winning poster by a student was chosen, and among those in the sale are designs by Dwight Clark Shepler, T.H. Joanethis and D.B. Leigh. 


A recently published book, Winter Carnival: A Century of Dartmouth Posters, includes the 100 winning poster designs from the past century. Read about record-setting carnival posters sold at Swann here.
