Airline Posters That Make You Want To Visit Japan

So... I was looking around for early aviation posters for my other blog: Pioneers of Aviation when I came across one or two involving Japan. Go check out my other blog, please.

So I got sidetracked and began spotting posters for the airline industries - the majority of them from the 1960s and for airlines that no longer exist, but still are pretty awesome some 50 years after they debuted.

My favorite is the Pan Am one above, because seeing it now, that woman makes me want to visit Japan. Repeatedly.

And because I've just taught myself how to write website code to enable side by side photos, here they are:
