Technological marvels such as railroads, ocean liners, and airplanes helped create an explosion in pleasure travel during the early 20th century. At the same time, poster art — with its dynamic images and bold letters — inspired travelers to see the world. Loaded with first-class fun, this coloring book is on the travel itinerary with thirty full-page images of glamorous and luxurious vacation spots. Based on authentic posters and labels of the period, the dramatically rendered signs advertise the sunny beaches of France and Italy, the excitement of Grand Prix racing in Monaco, winter sports in the French Alps, the marvelous sights of European capitals, and other scenic areas.
