We’re so honored to have been featured in Scotland’s national newspaper, The Scotsman this weekend! Click here to read all about the history of Guinness posters, and our special Edinburgh Zoo poster for the infamous beer brand.
Here's a favorite excerpt from the article:
Seller Mickey Ross, founder of the Ross Art Group, on New York’s Madison Avenue, said he bought the poster from a private collector of Guinness memorabilia in the UK late last year.
He said: “This whimsical poster really captures some of the fun and attraction of being at the zoo, but at the same time amuses the Guinness consumer.
“In the style of the Guinness advertising at the time, the poster also has a cheeky side to it, which is delightful.
“It isn’t often that we see a beer company in a joint marketing effort with a zoo.”
