New Items February 2022
In previous years we have accumulated new items over the 12 months and then waited until September to upload everything in time for Christmas. After ten years of complaining that this made August and September far too busy on the work front, we have decided that little and often makes more sense.
So we have decided that each month, we will upload approximately 100 new items to the store and this should be possible for the rest of 2022.
This month we have new designs in Railway Posters, Airline Posters, Sports and Motor Racing Posters, Overseas and British Tourism Posters and Advertising Posters. These include a number of new Air India posters, starring the Maharaja, who seems very popular, an amazing set of posters from the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games and a number of British Grand Prix Motor Racing Posters from the 1970's and 80's.
Here are my top 5 new items for February
Air India and The Maharaja's take on the new Jumbo Jet (Boeing 747) fom the 1970's.
One of twelve wonderful posters from the 1992 Barcelona Olympics that portray the athletes performing on top of the spinning globe.
In honour of the infamous British Rail Pork Pie and Egg Sandwich. Once eaten never forgotten. They certainly stayed with you. This BR Buffet Car Poster is from the 1950's.
A personal favourite is from the classic See India range, Ajanta Caves is on my bucket list of places to get to and the artwork on this poster is beautiful.
Back to a time before Macarthyism and a trip to Soviet Moscow to see The Bolshoi Ballet. The Soviet Union was, pre World War Two open for tourism and Intourist was the state run tourist board that produced some wonderful posters.
