Another Christies auction of posters is coming up soon – and while I really like a lot of the old posters, the fact that a lot of other people share my interest tends to push the prices to unaffordable levels. Alas.
Fortunately, the Christies website is quite good at displaying the posters being sold, and provides for a gentle 10 minutes of viewing pleasure.

A few of my personal favourites are:
(just 10.5 days to Australia – wow!)
(reminds me of the end sequence to 2001, A Space Odyssey)
(One of the more surreal posters from a series of adverts)
