    Does anyone know where I can find sources to buy antique art prints or posters or pictures from old books of pastry and baking related items ?
    TIA:)

    Antique posters of any subject matter are pretty collectable right now. It can be very very hard to distinguish between authentic and fakes (dealers get fooled too). You can contact any good art gallery or deal and they'll have sources. BUT be prepared to pay.....I might lean toward reproductions myself for the value.
    I know in Chicago there's a gallery that specificly deals in antique posters, I think their on North Ave. (if that's any help....). Breadster might know their name.

    Check out calendars, too - I got a French one for my kitchen that has old chocolate advertisement posters on it - made in France. Website on the back is www.clouet.com.
