The Day Of The Triffids - Vintage Movie Posters

Based on a John Wyndam novel of the same name this 1962 Sci-fi movie remains a favourite cult classic.







'In nature's scheme of things, there are certain plants which are carnivorous, or eating plants. The Venus Fly Trap is one of the best known of these plants. A fly drawn to the plant by its sweet syrup, brushes against triggered bristles. Just how these plants digest their pray has yet to be explained. There is much still to learn about these fascinating eating plants. This is a newcomer: Triffidus Celestus, brought to earth on the meteorite during the Day of the Triffids.'

Vintage Circus Posters



Some of my very favourite vintage prints are old circus and sideshow posters. They are nearly always colourful, exciting, fun, and contain a legion of weird,wonderful & talented characters.

Our collection covers a wide and eclectic variety of these posters - from the regular fare of high-wire & trapeze artists, animal acts, clowns, jugglers, strongmen, and tattooed ladies, to those mysterious beings - the bearded lady, two-headed woman, dancing prawns, and the lion-man.
The posters are a step back into a time of wonder that no longer exists. Although they are very often far from p.c, they give us a taste of the curiosity for the unknown, when science was young and anything was possible. I love them for the sense of mystery, naivety and the marvelous that they conjure up in us even now.
