Gibson & Co. Circus Poster : “Calliope! The Wonderful Operonicon or Steam Car of the Muses” (1874)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Printed by Gibson & Co., this promotional poster features a horse-drawn calliope, or steam organ, as it would have appeared in the circus parade. The text reads: “Calliope! The wonderful operonicon or steam car of the muses, as it appears in the gorgeous street pagent of the great European Zoological Association! British Museum. Royal Museum. Gallery of Art. World’s Congress and Gigantic Circus! 12 Tents! 900 Men and Horses! One Ticket Admits to All!”
