1937 "Foreign Trade Zone" Reproduction Hand-Printed Poster
This is a reproduction of a WPA (Works Progress Administration) poster designed by Jack Rivolta in 1937 for the City of New York Department of Docks. The poster commemorates "The United States' First Foreign Trade Zone / Staten Island - City of New York / Opened February 1, 1937."
This poster was printed in 1987 in conjunction with the publication of the book "Posters of the WPA" by Christopher Denoon.
Every effort was made to create an accurate, faithful reproduction using the same hand-pulled silkscreen process, the same number of colors, and the same paper size as the original. These stunning posters are unparalleled in their quality and they will never be reprinted once the edition of 250 has been depleted.
