Organized by region, this passport to Italy features:

170 vintage posters from 1920-1960 commissioned by the Italian State Tourism Board and the Italian State Railways from the prestigious Bellenda Collection.

At last a book that documents the long overlooked history of Italian poster design with understanding and elegance.

A beautiful piece of work.

—Milton Glaser

 The most celebrated graphic designer in the United States

From the 1920s through the 1960s, hundreds of artists dedicated their creative talent to promoting and increasing tourism in Italy. Although their styles were different,
all of them contributed to the creation of a remarkable body of work
we now know as
The Golden Age of Italian Travel Posters.

One gorgeous book...
