Just Landed- Original Airline Posters
May 15, 2014 § Leave a comment
This just in! We have acquired a collection of 20 stellar airline posters from the 1960’s designed for American Airlines and United Airlines. Destinations include Hawaii, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC, New York, Boston and more. They were collected by a Chicago businesswoman in the 1950’s and 60’s who made a hobby of visiting travel agencies and asking for posters. Now retired, she found VEPCA because of our blog post “Travel Posters and the Evolution of Flight.”
This roll of vintage paper is on the way to our paper conservator. Stay tuned because these gems will hit the table just in time for our run of summer shows. Check out vepca.com for the latest additions to our collection.
