Boston Public Library have just digitised their collection of old travel posters. Here is a selection guaranteed to get your feet itching
There was a time when travel posters were works of art. In some cases, quite literally. And as such that spoke directly to the soul and stirred with us our primal urge to travel.
Judging by this selection of vintage posters from a collection held by the Boston Library, they still have that power.
Here's a selection of our favourites.
