I recently came across these beautiful Come to Finland vintage travel posters and fell in love with their visuals. ‘It all started with the Come to Finland book which was illustrated with Finnish travel posters from the 20s to the 60s. People loved the pictures and wanted them in their homes’ says Magnus Londen, Poster Hunter in the project. With his team he dug from dusty archives, museums and from other posters collectors all around the world. See how these posters created a glamorous and trendy image of Finland!
(yes this one says ‘Finland country of romance’!)
Above is the beautiful front cover of the ‘Come to Finland’ book in French version – disponible dans toutes les bonnes librairies! To my French readers I also recommend this nice virtual show: http://show.cometofinland.fi/
Visit Come to Finland website for more poster visuals or if you want to order the book, some posters or the 2012 calendar which already hangs on my kitchen wall.
