Hi All,

In conjunction with a few other things I've decided that I need to add some color to the walls in my appartment... For one of the rooms I've decided to go for a "transportation" theme (primarially airline, but some rail/ship may find its way in).

Anyways... I'm looking for suggestions of sources for posters, either current or (especially) historical reflecting airline advertising, scenes of airline life, etc.

To narrow what already seems to be a small seletion further, I would prefer to sitick with stuff around the 24"x36" size and more artistic stuff (i.e. things along the lines of United's cartoon/animation advertising, Independence Air's "vintage" city posters).

Any ideas on where to look? (besides jetway display cases  Wink ). I've looked at AllPosters.com and a few other places, but I was not terribly impressed by the selection (the stuff I did like was only available in fairly small sizes).

Thanks for any ideas,

I have a large collection of Delta memorabilia. I found most of it on EBay.

Well, of course there is eBay, be sure to also do a search in collectibles there.

Better search is to look for the words "poster" or "print" in Collectibles...Transportation...Aviation. I check this on a daily basis.

Your best bet on finding something like you describe is to go to an Airliners trade show... which are basically shows dealing in airline oriented memorabilia.

http://www.airlinecollectibles.com is the site that sort of explains what to expect at one of the shows... the schedule has not been updated for this year yet at http://www.airlinecollectibles.com/alshows.htm

http://www.justplanes.com/Show.html has a listing of this years shows.

The best one to go to is the Airliners International... the big show where most vendors from around the country all attend once a year. The other shows over the course of the year tend to be much smaller and the merchandise local in nature.

I think you can check Airliners and Airways magazines for the schedule of shows also. Hope this helps.

Be seeing you.D~
