Ricordi Poster Portfolio

Founded in 1808 as G.Ricordi and Co. the company started as a publisher of music. The Italian company of Ricordi later built a reputation for producing topical and advertising posters from the 1890s onwards employing top designers such as Marcello Dudovich (1878) and Franz Laskoff (1869-1921). Tragically a high percentage of these posters were destroyed by the Fascist regime in the 1940s and then by Recordi themselves in the 1960s when they threw out archives to free up warehouse space.
