Art Deco

arm equipment posters were rarely on the cutting edge of graphic design, perhaps because advertisers considered farmers more practical than urban consumers and more resistant to stylistic trends. This poster is one exception. While most farm implement posters show products being used, this one places the cream separator on an abstract, geometrical background featuring the angular lines of the late Art Deco style.
