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.
