A New Collection of Summer Posters “Jeunesse au Plein Air”

September 13, 2012 § 1 Comment

Everybody’s just getting back into school mode, so naturally here at VEP we are dreaming of our next vacation! This charming series of posters was issued by the Federation of Secular Workers in France in 1951, encouraging parents to send their children to summer camp.  All of the posters in the series were designed by Herve Morvan, one of the post war poster artists.  Morvan also made posters for Air France, Billecart Champagne, Evian Water, and Bendix appliances.

Whether advocating a day out in the sunshine, jeunesse au plein air, vintage european poster, antique poster

or a trip to the park to feed the ducks, Jeunesse au Plein Air, vintage european poster, antique poster

these posters make it clear that the “key” to a happy childhood, is a summer spent at camp! Jeunesse au Plein Air, vintage european poster, antique poster

Is summer really over already?
