We’ve had a strong desire to travel during these pandemic months but unfortunately it’s quite impossible to do so.  We thought that viewing these posters might alleviate the longing.  Roger Borders was a French illustrator and artist best known for his travel posters.  He worked for the Paris Lyon Mediter­ranean Rail­road Com­pany cre­at­ing travel posters for a period of ten years, from 1922 to 1932, producing approximately 84 posters.  He is best known for his posters promoting tourism destinations in France but he also created loca­tions out­side France, such as Algiers, Tunis, Rome and Flo­rence.  His style was sim­i­lar to other travel poster artists but in 1928 he changed his signature and his style cre­at­ing posters that made him so pop­u­lar and set him apart from other artists.
