Start packing for your trip to 1953.
Photos and videos of faraway places often serve as the first impetus to start planning a new vacation. Whether scrolling through Facebook or flipping through the pages of a magazine, images of desert islands and snowy slopes can send anyone into a holiday daydream.
Nothing quite evokes the glamor of travel like vintage posters from the mid-century, dotted with 1960s hairstyles, corny tag-lines, and retro sunglasses.
Swann Auction Galleries in New York City is selling this fantasy with an enormous collection of posters, set to open for bidding at 10:30 a.m. Thursday. The auction house is selling several hundred items in an event that will take place both live in New York City and online via eBay.
Resort, ski, and cruise advertisements feature prominently among the collection that includes Art Nouveau, Work Incentive and Judaica styles, according to Swann.
The prices are expected to range from $300 all the way up to $18,000.
