Brilliant Vintage US Travel Posters

Ignoring that big castle down in Florida belonging to a corporate rodent, there is no one-set US destination to which international tourists flock - it’s a mixed bag of wonder over there.

Illustrating just that, sure to make you forget about the blinding lights, traffic jams and fast food chains that blight many a metropolis, visual artist Steven Thomas has captured some of the country's most famous and naturally handsome landmarks for a series of vintage-themed prints

Gleaning inspiration from a series of 2000 vintage posters released by the Works Progress Administration between 1936 and 1943, Thomas’s simply designed prints showcase the wealth and variety of tourist-luring sights right across the 50 states.

What better artwork to get you in the mood for a summer holiday? Until then, your pennies are best spent elsewhere - you can buy the prints from $17 each over at Printcollection.
