Vintage Africa

It been too long since I last showed you my favorite vintage airline posters! I've rounded up a few more and thrown in some non-airline ones. I find these works of art so fun and graphically amazing! I can't imagine what it must have been like in the 40s or 50s being an artist and trying to "sell" Africa to a crowd of Europeans. It's also amazing how the same concepts used to draw people in so many years ago (namely: seeing "natives" and going on "safari") are predominantly the same concepts used to draw tourists to the Continent today.
