Travel Poster Collection

Owning Institution: Los Angeles Public Library

About this Collection

Selected travel posters span the early 1920s to the 1960s and cover the "Golden Age of Travel”, when railways, airlines, and automobiles opened new and exciting possibilities to travel both locally and to destinations around the world. Travel posters commissioned during this period were created to entice would-be explorers to visit these destinations, and were common fixtures in travel agent offices, railway stations and airports. The collection showcases vibrant graphic design, including Art Deco and Futurist imagery, and is housed in the Rare Books Room at Central Library. View this collection on the contributor's website.
