This is large (19 x12 inches) lithograph poster printed on beige paper with exquisite schooner bearing English and United Kingdom flags. Printed by lithograph in 1897, in many wonderful pastel colors including yellow, light blue, red, as well as black. Fine condition. Born in Somerville, Massachusetts, Theodore Hapgood studied at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In the late 1890s, he designed posters for important publications including The Century Magazine, The Inland Printer, and for Little, Brown & Company and other publishers. His work exemplified impeccable craftsmanship and found its way into book covers and jackets, monuments, vignettes and ecclesiastical vestments. He is best known for his bookplates, some of which were reproduced in The Hapgood Brochure (Charles Goodspeed, 1907). Some of Hapgoodís bookplates were exhibited in the landmark Wellesley College arts and crafts show ìInspiring Reform.î He died in Boston. One of only a very few Hapgood posters to turn up on the market in many years.
