About This Item

Travel posters, stylish advertisements for tourists, captured the golden age of European rail travel in the 1920s and 1930s. From Lake Garda to the canals of Venice and the ruins of Rome, Italy beckoned tourists to explore its wonders for a fun-filled vacation or a relaxing retreat. Railroad companies, such as the French Paris-Lyon-Méditerranée, and even the Italian National Tourist Board (ENIT) got into the game, commissioning posters to promote their luxury routes. With stunning illustrations and typography, renowned artists and anonymous designers created for the world an ideal escape, often positioning the viewer high above their scenic destination. Though little is known about many of these artists today, their works fascinate everyone from casual observers to studied collectors. The twelve posters reproduced in this calendar would make anyone want to pack a bag and head for the station.

Twelve monthly grids and full-color artwork.

Size: 12 x 13 in. Opens to 12 x 26 in.
