15 Charming Vintage Airline Posters

I love coming across treasure troves of new beautiful books and ephemera to look at. Today’s favorite find so far are vintage travel posters. We have dozens and dozens of beautiful, old vintage airline posters, many on linen, many lithograph, from all over the world. They come from various airlines as well – Air France, Qantas, Pan Am, United Airlines and many more. These ones are all on offer from the same bookseller – oldimprints.com.

I’d love to have some of these preserved and framed – they would look fabulous as a series in a home. And there’s some great nostalgia value as well, for those who were in the airline industry. Both my parents were – my father worked for Pan Am, my mother for American Airlines (she’s been to Hawaii nearly 40 times!), and they both talk very fondly about the way air travel used to be. Enjoy this gorgeous art from a time when air travel was a luxury and a treat.
