Sotheran’s are delighted to present the fifteenth Annual Travel Posters exhibition. We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible for the Private View on Thursday 11th November from 6.00 – 8.00pm. This will be the first party at Sotheran’s for almost 2 years!

We have some lovely posters on offer this year. There are more British posters than usual (items 1-13). Perhaps this is as a result of the increased demand for holidays closer to home over the last year.

There are some wonderful Irish posters too (items 14-16). I particularly love the poster advertising the Bundoran Great Northern Hotel (item 15). It really makes me want to go there which was the exact intention of these posters at the time.

We have some impressive posters by the great artist Roger Broders with the two originals from the South of France being particularly desirable (items 26-27). 

My favourite this year is the Erich Hermes Swiss poster (item 48) which brings back fond memories of holidays in the Alps. I can imagine if James Bond did skiing holidays he would do them in the style of the gentleman shown in this poster.

The colours in some of the posters in exhibition are striking and they stand out even when seen from a distance. Perhaps none more so than the Frank Wooton poster of Rhodesia (item 72).

The exhibition will be on display in the Print department from Friday 12th November to Friday 3rd December 2021. I do hope you will be able to come and see them as they do look even better in person.
