WOW! -- LearnAboutMoviePosters.com is celebrating its third anniversary. We officially opened LAMP on Jan 15, 2001 as a small dot in the area of movie poster collecting on the internet. At the end of that year, we were ecstatic to have 400 pages of information and were overjoyed to have almost 10,000 visitors a month.

During our second, year we expanded our articles to include such areas as Artists and Studios. We started tracking and listing ALL NSS numbers of the 44 years of NSS dominance. By the end of our second year, the site was almost 5000 pages of information and we almost quadrupled in traffic to close to 40,000 visitors a month.

We made even greater strides in the year 2003. We tracked 1,240,000 visitors for the year from over 100 countries.

* Expanded the reference section to over 6,500 pages.

* Expanded Studio History

* Added over 10,000 NSS numbers

* Created a Lithographer Section

* Expanded our poster Artists Section AND

* Created the Movie Poster Data Base which is designed as an archive for movie poster images from around the world. It also allows reputable dealers to list their movie posters for sale within the MPDB.

While we are very happy with our accomplishments, we do not plan to rest on our laurels. Our motto is:

A Little Bigger and A Little Better Each Day - Building A New Direction .. For All of Us.

To read more about our growth in the last three years, read our End of the Year Report.

We recently unveiled our new Home Page. We have restructured the page so that it is easier to navigate the site -- which is now over 100,000 pages.

The new navigation bar makes it easier to reach specific areas of the site. Here are some of the highlights:

The first change you'll notice is the search box which goes directly into the Movie Poster Data Base. You can also search by:
Poster Images
Poster Size
You can also check out the MPDB stats and use our power search. You can also go directly to our "Meet the Dealers" Section which highlights the reputable dealers that have been approved to list their items for sale in the MPDB.

The next part of the Navigation Bar takes you into a topical listing of the Reference Section of our website. These links are self-explanatory:

The third section of our new Nav Bar presents our "Lagniappe" section. (That's a New Orleans term meaning something extra!).

These links are also self-explanatory.

We will eventually convert all articles into this new format. It will take time so we ask that you be patient. If you have any comments about our new layout, please contact us.


The 2004 editions of Jon R Warren’s Movie Poster Prices, Volumes 1 and 2 will be released in early March. This year Jon is doing something never done before: they're producing two editions. Volume One will contain listings for movie posters from 1900 to 1959 and Volume Two will contain listings from 1960 to date.

Get two ads for the price of one! Your ad will appear in both editions of the new guide. Don't miss out!

These books build on the original Movie Poster Price Guide by Jon Warren. Jon has added thousands of new listings and completely updated the prices to reflect the current market. There will be prices for more than 40,000 movie posters in every category spanning the years from 1900 to present.

DEALERS - DON'T MISS THIS CHANCE TO ADVERTISE IN THESE POPULAR BOOKS. For more info, visit Jon's website by clicking HERE.



For the last couple of years, we've been asked to add an on-topic forum to our website. We were happy to find that Jon Warren's talk forum is exactly what we were looking for. So instead of creating a new forum, we talked to Jon about associating with him and he graciously agreed. So the name has been changed from Iguide Forum to Movie Poster Talk and we're thrilled to highly recommend it to ALL levels of collectors.

If you enjoy chatting with other movie poster collectors about our favorite hobby, join us here.
