David Klein - Retro 1950's Travel Posters

Vintage travel advertising and broadway window posters from the 1950s/1960s.

Coming from a watercolor background, Klein made post-war era travel appealing and animated through the way he implements landmarks and abstract coloring in his posters. He really knows how to provoke that gung-ho attitude through visual imagery in these.

The first poster was featured in an article by Entertainment Weekly in the discussion of the Emmy and Golden Globe winning AMC drama Mad Men. Surely one of the most influential and greatest commercial illustrators of our time. Found off grain edit here.
