Explore the Seven Wonders of the World, “fly the friendly skies” or sail the open seas with the International Vintage Poster Dealers Association’s (IVPDA) new online exhibit, “Around the World with Vintage Travel Posters.” The new web show offers poster collectors, history buffs and travel enthusiasts alike the opportunity to peruse and purchase original vintage posters from members of the IVPDA, the worlds most knowledgeable and trusted vintage poster dealers.
"Travel posters are one of the most collectible categories of vintage posters," says Mireille Romand, IVPDA president, "Many recognize the vintage travel poster Cote D'Azur by Pierre Fix Masseau, but to actually own that original poster is a collector’s dream – a dream an IVPDA dealer can make possible through this exhibit."
The original vintage posters offered in this exhibition are as beautiful as the destinations they once advertised. Steamships, railroads, and airlines are all showcased in the exhibition. The viewer will see how travel was represented in the 1890s by Belle Époque artists such as Jules Cheret and Hugo D'Alesi, then witness how dramatically it changed as transportation sped up in the time period of machine age Art Deco, as captured by Pierre Fix Masseau and A.M. Cassandre. Finally, the viewer will be delighted with the happy post-war period aviation posters advertising Air France, TWA, United Airlines and more by great artists including Lucien Boucher, David Klein and Stan Galli.
“Around the World with Vintage Travel Posters” is part of a series of ongoing online exhibitions offered by the IVPDA. Collectors can buy with confidence as all posters sold by IVPDA members are guaranteed to be original vintage posters.
