    Travel posters are an ever-popular aspect of graphic design. I thought I would feature a broad spectrum of posters from the first half of the C20th, the golden age of the travel poster probably being associated with the 1920s and 1930s with posters by artists like Roger Broders, featuring sunny Mediterranean scenes.

    Naturally many of these posters were put out by travel companies - railways, airlines and shipping companies feature heavily. Others were sponsored by tourist boards of cities and of countries. I didn't find dates for all of the posters featured, those that I did find are in the first 5 parts of 8. I will be featuring almost 500 posters in the series.

    This is part 1 of an 8 - part post on vintage travel posters.

    Roger Broders Posters
    Roger Broders (1883 Paris - 1953 Paris) was a French illustrator and was considered the best travel poster artist of his era. His posters are highly sought after and command higher prices than many of his contemporaries.
    Broders designed stylish images of fashionable resorts of the 1920s and 30s, which are now the most collectable. His use of bright colours and fashionable type fonts created a strong visual impression and would seem to represent the epitome of the modern travel poster.

    Bernard Villemot














    Bernard Villemot (1911 - 1989) was a French graphic artist known primarily for his iconic advertising images for Orangina, Bally shoes, Perrier, and Air France. Between 1932-34 he studied in Paris with artist Paul Colin, who was considered a master of Art Deco. In 1945-46 Villemot did posters for the Red Cross. In the late 1940s he began his famous series of travel posters for Air France.

    Travel posters are an ever-popular aspect of graphic design. I thought I would feature a broad spectrum of posters from the first half of the C20th, the golden age of the travel poster probably being associated with the 1920s and 1930s with posters by artists like Roger Broders, featuring sunny Mediterranean scenes.

    David Klein
    David Klein (1918 - 2005) was born in El Paso, Texas in 1918, bit moved to California where he attended the Art Centre School in Los Angeles. During the 1930s he was a prominent member of the California Watercolour Society.
    During World War 2, Klein served in The US Army and produced illustrations for the United States Armed Forces. In 1953 the United States Air Force created the Air Force Art Collection featuring many of Klein's works.
    By the mid 1950s Klein had established a reputation as one of America's pre-eminent commercial illustrators. Between 1955 and 1965 Klein designed numerous award-winning travel posters, emblematic of the jet age. The bulk of this work was for TWA.

    Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849) was a Japanese ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) painter and printmaker and painter, born in Edo (now Tokyo), and is best known for his woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji c. 1830-35 which includes the internationally recognised print The Great Wave off Kanagawa.


    Between the ages of 14 and 18 Hokusai was an apprentice wood-carver, whereupon he was accepted into the studio of Katsukawa Shunsho which focused on images of the courtesans and Kabuki actors who were popular in Japan’s cities at the time. After a year Hokusai changed his name for the first time, when he was dubbed Shunro by his master. It was under this name that he published his first prints, a series on Kabuki actors.


    On the death of Shinsho in 1793, Hokusai began exploring other styles of art, including European styles he was exposed to through French and Dutch copper engravings. He was soon expelled from the Katsukawa school by Shunko, the chief disciple of Shunso, possibly due to his studies at the rival Kano school. This event was, in his own words, inspirational: “What really motivated the development of my artistic style was the embarrassment I suffered at Shunko’s hands.”


    Hokusai also changed the subjects of his works, moving away from the images of courtesans and actors that were traditional subjects of ukiyo-e. Instead, his work became focused on landscapes and images of the daily life of Japanese people from a variety of social levels. This change of subject was a breakthrough in ukiyo-e and in Hokusai’s career.


    The next period saw Hokusai’s association with the Tarwaraya School and the adoption of the name “Tawaraya Sori.” He produced many brush paintings and illustrations for Kyoka Eho (illustrated book of humourous poems) during this time. In 1798 he passed his name on to a pupil and set out as an independent artist, free from ties to a school for the first time, adopting the name Hokusai Tomisa.


    By 1800 Hokusai was further developing his use of ukiyo-e for purposes other than portraiture. He also adopted the name he would most widely be known by, Katsushika Hokusai, the former name referring to the part of Edo where he was born and the latter meaning “North Studio.”


    He became increasingly famous over the next decade, both due to his artwork and his talent for self-promotion. In 1811 at the age of 51 he changed his name to “Taito” and entered the period in which he created the Hokusai Manga and various art manuals (Etehon). Together, his twelve volumes of manga published before 1820 and three more published posthumously include thousands of drawings of animals, religious figures, and everyday people. They often have humourous overtones, and were very popular at the time.


    In 1820 Hokusai changed his name yet again, this time to “Litsu,” a change that marked the start of a period in which he secured fame as an artist throughout Japan. It was during the 1820’s that Hokusai reached the peak of his career. His most famous work, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji,including the famous Great Wave off the Coast of Kanagawa, dated from this period.


    1830-31c The Great Wave (In the Hollow of a Wave off the Coast at Kanagawa colour woodcut 25.5 x 38 cm
    It proved so popular that Hokusai later added ten more prints to the series. Among the other popular series of prints published during this time are A Tour of Waterfalls in Various Provinces and Remarkable Views of Bridges in Various Provinces. He also began producing a number of detailed individual images of flowers and birds.

    The next period, beginning in 1834, saw Hokusai working under the name “Gakyo Rojin Manji” (The Old Man Mad about Art). It was at this time that he produced another significant landscape series One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji.


    1n 1839 disaster struck as a fire destroyed Hokusai’s studio and much of his work. By this time his career was beginning to wane, as younger artists such as Ando Hiroshige became increasingly popular. But Hokusai never stopped painting, and completed Ducks in a Stream at the age of 87.

    Katsushika Hokusai died in 1849.

    Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849) was a Japanese ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) painter and printmaker and painter, born in Edo (now Tokyo), and is best known for his woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji c. 1830-35 which includes the internationally recognized print The Great Wave off Kanagawa.



    Hokusai created the series both as a response to a domestic travel boom and as part of a personal obsession with Mount Fuji itself. It was this series that secured Hokusai’s fame both in Japan and overseas.

    Travel posters are an ever-popular aspect of graphic design. I thought I would feature a broad spectrum of posters from the first half of the C20th, the golden age of the travel poster probably being associated with the 1920s and 1930s with posters by artists like Roger Broders, featuring sunny Mediterranean scenes.

    This is part 5 of an 8 - part post on vintage travel posters. For earlier works see parts 1 - 4 also.

    David Klein
    David Klein (1918 - 2005) was born in El Paso, Texas in 1918, bit moved to California where he attended the Art Centre School in Los Angeles. During the 1930s he was a prominent member of the California Watercolour Society.
    During World War 2, Klein served in The US Army and produced illustrations for the United States Armed Forces. In 1953 the United States Air Force created the Air Force Art Collection featuring many of Klein's works.
    By the mid 1950s Klein had established a reputation as one of America's pre-eminent commercial illustrators. Between 1955 and 1965 Klein designed numerous award-winning travel posters, emblematic of the jet age. The bulk of this work was for TWA.
