Vintage travel posters

Henry Sotheran’s, famous for fine books and dating back to 1761, is mounting a vintage travel poster exhibition which runs until 1 October at its Sackville Street, Piccadilly, London premises.


Even if you are not interested in purchasing any of the original lithographs, which are priced up to nearly £10,000, it is well worthwhile spending time viewing some extraordinary works of art.  


BOAC finds favour with the gallery, as does Cunard and any number of popular international destinations.  A zebra advertisement for Africa by TWA must be a classic, and Air France, American Airlines, BEA and Swissair did commission in their time some glorious posters.  Artists working for London Transport, as was, were clearly directed to help with Keeping Britain Tidy.  “Don’t Drop Litter” ran the advertisement. 


“Visit Windermere and go by Train” (1960) has an asking price of £1,295, if not already sold. www.sotherans.co.uk
