Vintage travel posters are a delight to see, but they can also remind us that the world can change a lot in a few decades. This poster from 1934 shows French pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry flying over the Mekong delta in French Indochina - which just a few decades later was in the headlines for years because of the Vietnam war. The design is by Romain Hugault.
About me: Dutchman, married to a beautiful and highly talented artist from Shanghai. Although my education (PhD chemistry) is very much associated with the left side of the brain, I like to use my right side for my hobbies: music, art, photography.
About this blog: I started this blog in August 2006, just wanting to share what I considered interesting pieces of visual art and music. I suffered from blogging blues for most of 2008, but making a fresh start in October of that year has done wonders for my inspiration. In case you did not notice, most posts end with a small symbol... just click that for the relevant link. All pictures in my blog are hosted on blogger - if some do not show up (the red cross syndrome) it is a blogger hiccup. Right click and selecting "show picture" should do the trick.
About the reconstruction:
End March 2017 I converted thousands of posts to draft, in order to sort out potential copyright issues. Many of these have been restored in the course of the year.
