Winter Wonderland: A nostalgic swoosh down the slopes, from Austria to Zermatt…

BannerWinter  Skiing posters, like many advertising posters, were originally produced to entice holiday-makers and winter thrill-seekers to resorts and alpine areas. The early- to mid-century skiing posters were often designed by notable artists of the time and are colourful, dynamic, glamorous, nostalgic and stylish, sometimes also fun and quirky. The ones that survived now make for a good investment, ideal for decorating chalets and “back home” as a stunning reminder of a memorable ski trip. Visit our original vintage skiing posters page for more reviews, further information and images.

Get ready for some retro swooshing down the slopes now with a few of our original vintage skiing and winter posters; click on the images below and visit our website at www.AntikBar.co.uk to view our whole collection:
