Looking for vintage travel posters... where?

General art-related discussion.

Postby jrm27 on Sun Sep 17, 2017 5:54 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking to put some vintage travel posters on my home-walls. Where in the world should I be looking? Looking specifically for London/Paris/Amsterdam/Jerusalem/Mexico/Moscow/Sydney... Really, vintage original would be awesome, but are there other current artists who are making cool screenprinted travel posters?

Anywhere I should be looking? Thanks!

Save 'original travel poster' and 'vintage travel poster' to your eBay searches.

Otherwise you'll pay a huge premium from the many dealers that offer them.

good thinking! For some reason I always tend to overlook eBay...

They sell mainly original movie theater posters but from time to time they have some vintage travel posters and when they do they group them together so a few to pick from.

You're a troll. You're not making any contribution to the thread, you're a troll. We're guessing who trolls are. You know most users who only make jokes without trying to help are trolls? - Well I'm going home alright? EB's playing with its new guys.

I've found EBay is usually the best place to find vintage posters. Dealers can be expensive, however you're also usually getting excellent condition, restored, cleaned, and linen mounted. I've had excellent luck searching EBay France using French key words, but this can be tedious when I'm doing very vague searches. I discover a lot of new stuff this way though..
PM me if you have any questions about vintage posters. They got me into the screen print world, but still definitely my first love.

I'll check that out! Thanks for the heads up. I wouldn't have thought to look there for travel stuff.

Indeed, they did have some stuff for me to consider, the Durieux stuff is top-notch as always. Thanks!

Yeah, there's a lot of stuff on eBay for sure. I've really taken a shine to David Klein's work for TWA, but man... the ones that I like are crazy. I hate the thought of buying bootleg prints and crappy reproductions though. I'm trying to find places that may have the rights to sell/reprint giclees even (though I'm definitely a screenprint nerd), but since TWA is defunct and Mr. Klein has passed on, there's not much info out there. I'm not too concerned with excellent condition, or linen mounted posters.. if it's original and the price is right, I dont midn paying less for some "patina" :) Sounds like I need to brush up on some ebay French and go looking through their offerings.

I've also stumbled upon the works of Mads Berg over the past few years and figure something like his style could work well too.

Looks like I might need to haul out MA for the good stuff! And, if anyone knows where the good stuff is, I'm assuming its Daniel Danger. Thanks for the resource!
