Vintage Trans World Airlines (TWA) Travel Posters

Loving these colorful & abstract vintage 1950s & 60s TWA travel posters by the iconic late illustrator, David Klein. Back when flying used to be a classy Sunday-best affair and people were not forced to take off their shoes and stand on cold concrete whilst being prodded by security wands. Oh, how I long for the good old days! Up, up, and away!

Help Japan

In the aftermath of the 8.9 earthquake and tsunami (and continuing nuclear disaster) people all over the world have been offering sympathy, support, thoughts, and prayers to the people of Japan. Alice’s blog over at My Modern Met has been highlighting creative fundraiser projects for disaster relief in Japan, such as these illustrated prints. Created by graphic designers, James White, and, Rob Dobi, they are available for purchase with all proceeds going directly to disaster relief efforts.

Japanese photographer/web designer, Hideaki Hamada, has started a Flickr group/photography project in order to encourage people to donate to relief efforts. “I believe the power of our photographs will make people around the world act,” Hamada says.

You can contribute by adding the caption, “Please Donate for Japan Earthquake,” to your own photo and uploading it to the group project page: http://www.flickr.com/groups/donatejp.

Vintage Star Wars Travel Posters

My inner sci-fi geek has been in love with (and drooling over) these Star Wars travel prints by graphic designer, Steve Thomas, since I discovered them via Tiny Celestial by way of Design You Trust. Inspired by vintage travel posters of the early 20th century, these have a funky retro vibe and a serious sense of humor. At limited editions of 150 artist signed copies each (they’ve been going on sale two at a time) these are so worth the $89 price tag (I may, in fact, have just purchased Cruising the Galaxy this very evening). I think I need to start brushing up on my Huttese…
