Nostalgia and old posters

Standard

Been spending time with a big stack of dull textbooks and an even bigger pile of notes. Maybe that’s what inspired me to whip out my laptop and look for some old-school nostalgia and travel ads. And the gems I ended up uncovering were more than enough to make my day.

For the love of all things vintage and travel-ish, I present to you this AMAZING collection of vintage travel posters I found. Don’t you wish posters today still looked like this?

New York.

Italy. I love that vespa. And the girl looks like she’s having so much fun!

The Caribbean. Check out that skirt and its frills.

Chicago. Absolutely loving the tagline. Chicago: The Windy City. 

Bali. Exotic and mysterious?

Mexico. Yummy yummy fruits.

Paris. Fabulous montage. That Mona Lisa sure did catch my eye.

Siam. Or Thailand as it’s known today. Loving the twilight hue of the poster.

Cuba. Sunny and Beachy.

Hawaii. Of flowers and pineapples.

Lugano. I want to wear a pink dress and lie in a tree too!

Ticino. In Italy. This just became one of my favourite posters.

So there are plenty more posters that I found, but these are just some of those that really caught my eye. Now I feel like I HAVE to travel to all these places.  Do you have a favourite poster out of all these jewels?

  1. I think those posters are incredible! I’ve seen some in museums, but never really out in public anywhere outside of glass cases.

    And I am envious 🙂 I’d love to know how you can post pictures in your blog here. I cannot figure it out, so if you could be kind to help me out? I’d appreciate it.

    And thanks for sharing these posters. They look amazing and so vintage!!

    • Well I am able to directly copy and paste pictures into my post! Not sure if you can do that? Otherwise I would save the pictures into my computer and select the images to form a picture gallery to accompany my post.
