··· IMAGE ···

This amazing poster is an enlarged, high-resolution reproduction print of a vintage linen souvenir postcard (c. 1930s-50s). It reads, "Greetings from PAINTED DESERT Ariz." Each of the letters has a different desert scene and the background is a beautiful illustration of the colorful, rolling hills.

Ever since souvenir picture postcards first made their debut at Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair, one particular design style - the "Large Letter" postcard - has endured as a symbol of vintage travel. Large Letter postcards reached peak popularity from 1930-1950 (considered the "linen era" among postcard collectors). Prominent printers of that era include Curt Teich & Company of Chicago, Tichnor Brothers of Boston, and E.C. Kropp of Milwaukee. By 1956, Teich alone had over 1000 individual designs, with no location or city too small to feature. The souvenir postcards trumpeted the virtues of states, cities, military bases, and tourist attractions, including national and state parks.

Note: If you would like a different city, state, or region that you don't already see in the shop, send me a custom order request and I'll see what I can do! Allow 2-3 weeks for creation & delivery of custom orders.
