40 Vintage Ocean Liner Ads






































During the Industrial Revolution with the spur of travel and transportation, advertising was imperative in generating business and awareness of trains, air travel, and ships.   What I like mainly about these is mainly the illustration work, though there are some good uses of kerning and type selection throughout the posters.  There are even some nice Art Deco pieces in the bunch, with the first poster being my favorite for its tidiness, overall visual appeal, and border work.
