November 11, 2009 | Comments Off on Bern Hill Railroad Posters

I had never heard of Bern Hill before but last week i saw an old episode on PBS’s Antique Roadshow and was blown away by his railroad posters. Each of them showed his great control of perspective and playfulness with light and shadows. The posters were appraised at $2000 a piece and that’s great considering that the collector bought most of them for $1.

You can view the Bern Hill episode below or check out other posters and transcripts of the show.
