Thanks to the allure of spectacular locations, exhilarating activity and glamorous company, the craze for skiing grew rapidly in the early 20th century. Railway companies, travel agents and resorts engaged some of the best-known artists of the day to create stylish and evocative posters advertising winter sports and this volume presents a wonderful collection of them, mainly from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, promoting resorts such as Chamonix, St Moritz, Aspen and Banff, in Europe and North America.
