How do we differentiate between ABU's Posters, Art, Advertizing, Catalogs, Manuals etc?
....all are graphic and show the development of equipment and of course the technology to represent that equipment in a graphic form to promote their items.
Some are pinned up and used in store to promote new items , while other are hung from the ceiling.
Some are purely for Art's sake and I have a category for that, some are obviously manuals and catalogs but Posters seem to overlap with Advertizing to assist sales eg lures as well as some being educational such as in identifying fish species while others are produced for Art's sake.
Here I will try to show some Posters created for varying reasons.
Christmas is not forgotten
The first 10 or so are ones which I own and are in my display, while the latter one which I need are after the "Yet to Find" subtitle.
The first posters I obtained were those depicting equipment and lures and some showing covers of Tight Lines/Napp och Nytt catalogs.
Some showing covers of 2002/2004 Napp och Nytt catalogs.
I have a spare copy of this beautiful Art paper quality poster print below if anyone wishes to trade/buy me something for it
Some of my favourites are the educational Identifish
fish series relating to ABU's Type 1, 2, 3 and 4 fishing classes.
A good friend Stephen Makin firstname.lastname@example.org , in the UK, was bidding on this #1 poster also but I put in a higher bid to secure it. If you have a spare one of these he would love to buy one to complete his set of #, 2, 3 and 4. Please e-mail him if you can help him. Alternatively he will sell the 3 posters he has # 2, 3 and 4 .
....more to be added as photographed/scanners not large enough
