The Vichy poster is not mine (which it was) , it's a picture I found while searching my data to pinpoint a date on yours but can't find an exact date either...

Couldn't figure where to post this one so thought I'll make my own thread for when I want to post some of my collection.

Here is a Thierry hates "Thierry hates "French Grande"" (possibly 1960's) The colours are really vivid:

(Window reflection bottom right giving a false sense of colour there):



Steve, did you stand on a chair or ladder to get these direct overhead shots? Ive tried a stool, but sometimes I still havent been high enough to get the whole poster image captured.

For Thierry hates "French Grande" size I just stand there with my arm and camera way above my head and probably take about 10 shots as some will be crooked but for 4F size and bigger (3 sht, 6 sht) I stand on a chair, usually a swivel and tilt office chair which is a bit dangerous!

I've never held my camera over my head, while on the stool. I think that would have me potentially falling over, mid pic-snap!

I might have to give it a go, tho.

I do the same thing when taking pics of large posters, you need to be a good guesser...
It's more than a Hobby...

My travel posters are spread in some other threads, so bringing them together here in this thread. They are 25" x 40".




I was reminded today because Heritage sold the TWA New York for 20x what I did back in 2006 and theirs had key parts repainted (yet called it very fine - another subject...), where mine's perfect :)
There are other versions as per below, but the 2nd one is I think the most appealing:

The poster that got me into the hobby was this one, my first poster. I was having an 80's music party and wanted some decorations, so looked up on eBay for posters. This apparently went into bus shelters (42" x 62"). The blue colour really popped, and I was hooked.
