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:


European Vacation:


Of course I love the elephant in this one:


I also found a site with free vintage travel posters from America.

Loving the colors in Miami:


Home Sweet Home: New York


What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas:




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!

These are great! I would like to find an Italy one also since that is where we went for our honeymoon.

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).
