Travel Posters: Pan Am in the Early ’70s

This post on Eye Blog has a History Detectives feel, chronicling the history of a forgotten Pan Am Airlines advertising campaign from the early ’70s.

The effort to rebrand the troubled airline failed—eventually, so did the airline—but the designs are now celebrated. A few of the posters were recently featured in an exhibit at MoMA in New York. Check out a few below. They’re beautiful.

The Eye Blog has a bunch more to see. (Via Coudal)

The photos are beatiful and it seems like she traveled the world.

These are outstanding photos!  Thanks for sharing some of the vintage PanAm ads.  I’ve been in the airline biz a while, and still regularly run into airline employees ( PanAm, Braniff, etc ) that really miss the “good old days” when air travel was an indulgance.
