So, one of the many things I'm interested in is mobility and travel in the early twentieth century. Particularly the aesthetics of travel. So obviously, I'm in love with these two famous modernist posters:
I love the long, straight, metonymical lines which connote speed, size and modernity. The typefaces are lovely too.
Anyway, I came across this today:
Look at these beautiful bus passes… Someone went to all that trouble making these designs, and they only lasted a week. I love how they put little reminders on them, like the one below. A reminder to buy flowers on mothers day! Or social behavior, to use school yards during vacation so the kids wouldn’t be on the streets. Lovely!
Any other vintage travel buffs out there?
