I always, always had wanderlust and this is one of the posters that inspired me to follow my dream. The Art of Travel , Norman Parkinson 1951

i love cinema posters there are so many hard to choose.

First film we went to actually see at a cinema that I can remember was Mary Poppins but all time: Day of the trifids and war of the world both old school

(Ann Coe) #15

(Paul Flinders) #16

There are lots of minor variations depending on the particular exposition, all are good works of art IMHO

(Harry Fawcett) #17

hahah was just thinking the same but mine would be a mix of a few folks.

I go back even further in my favorites (note all my books on Posters on I have over 18,000 images in my files yes, Eighteen Thousand so definitely not an easy choice although I admit to not keeping photographic posters as I was an commercial artist myself, so a prejudiced in favour of people who used pencils, pens and brushes, which puts my appreciation more in the pre-War days and earlier Overall the Munich School stand out Hohlwein, Hans Rudi Erd etc. The Italians produced the most brilliant ‘works of art’, As I write I am just sorting out a couple: How do you add an image here?

(Simon Armstrong) #19

Norman hello - one of the ways to add an image is to upload it from your computer using the ‘up-arrow’ 38 in the reply / edit box
