Jaarbeurs – Dutch Posters

The Jaarbeurs (Yearly Fair) is an exhibition and convention centre in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The first Dutch Annual Exhibition (Nederlandse Jaarbeurs) was organised by the Utrecht branch of the Vereeniging Nederlandsch Fabrikaat in 1917. This first trade fair attracted over 150,000 visitors, which was a huge number at the time. It now attracts 2.65 million visitors a year.


The posters I have selected are from between 1917 and 1956, and represent the fashions and styles of the day in graphic design and typography. There are one or two from other locations.
