Come away with me: Vintage Travel Posters

Everyone loves going on vacation. Being out of the office, enjoying new sites, eating yummy foods and of course the shopping!



During every trip I take I’m always on the look out for a cool trinket to bring home with me and remember the trip. Sometimes it’s an elephant to add to my collection or a vintage candlestick holder from a flea market in Florence.



Seeing this image from Design Sponge I was reminded of another way to remember your favorite locales….vintage travel posters!

Boston Public Library has a flickr set full of vintage travel posters that you are allowed to save onto your computer so print away!

Here are some favorites:



We went to Italy a couple of years ago so I think this would be a good one to add to my collection:

I love how many different prints are available and at pennies!



I know one person that will be able to fill a gallery wall with them….Summer Lee! Congrats on winning the 3M give-away!

Fantastic! I'm a Boston gal and had no idea the BPL offered these posters. I've bookmarked the link and am thinking about ways to use them!

I love vintage travel posters! The only problem is, I can never decide which one to get. So excited these are free which makes my indecision a little more acceptable!

That Las Vegas one is so splendid! It reminds me of the Pixar short film they played right before Toy Story 3 (if you've seen it yet).
