Vintage poster sale prompts wanderlust

Fly_cubana_airlines_l109The next best thing to traveling is dreaming about traveling.

Long before the day of blogs and the Travel Channel, graphic artists almost made a science of inspiring wanderlust, with evocative posters.

Some fine examples are on sale next Thursday, February 5, during an auction of vintage travel posters at Swann Auction Galleries in New York. These works can run several thousand dollars, so it's nice that the auction house will let you peruse the collection online, and in person this weekend.

A poster expert will lead a tour of the items for sale on Saturday at 3 p.m.

Keep in mind not all the items travel-themed. There's a grab-bag from World War II propaganda to burlesque posters.

Thanks: Newyorkology
