Numismatists often collect more than just numismatic items. For those with an interest in posters, here's another Hyperallergic article
on a new poster museum opening in New York. Pictured is Alphonse Mucha's 1896 "Zodiac" poster. -Editor
The United States has niche museums for almost every subject, from trains and boats, to UFOs and conspiracy theories, but it's never had a
museum celebrating the art and history of the poster. That will soon change with the opening of Poster House in New York City.
The 15,000 square-foot museum, located on West 23rd Street in Chelsea, Manhattan, includes three exhibition spaces, interactive displays in its
hallways, and a children's area. The new museum already boasts a permanent collection of 7,000 historical posters collected from around the world and
1,000 contemporary posters that will be shown in future exhibitions.
