Award-winning aviation journalist Geza Szurovy has had a life-long love affair with airplanes and he’s even a pilot himself. And because he thinks about the world and the place of everything in it, he connects some interesting dots. From the travel poster designer’s point of view all the artwork has to do is just that: connect dots on a map in an emblematic manner. They are sourced from museums and airline archives (Air France is the largest such, with over 350 posters), individual collectors, and of course the author’s own collection.

According to the book Art of the Airways by Geza Szurovy, though airline poster art can be traced back to 1914 and the very first airline, the 1950s saw the form reach its peak just as aviation became a mature industry. Notably, posters from that period and later tended to focus not so much on the plane itself as where it could get you. " allure of exotic destinations was a strong draw from the beginning," Szurovy writes, "and as airline safety improved and speed was taken for granted the destination became the dominant theme.
