VTP: India

This post is part of a monthly series of eye candy at Fly Brother, imaginatively named VTP (short for Vintage Travel Posters). We'll see how travel companies and bureaus have been enticing people off the couch since international leisure travel first became a bourgeois conceit. Few places stimulate the imagination for better or worse than India, though travel posters seem to have focused primarily on elephants, the Taj Mahal, and multi-armed Hindu deities to sell a continent-sized country full of over a thousand languages and just as many cultures. Still, the colorful, detailed designs make up for the lack of thematic ideas.

Fly Brother welcomes your views. If this post hit the spot, please comment and/or click.

NICE! I love vintage posters! When will you be in Southeast Asia? I have been living in Vietnam for the past 2 months. check out my blog: http://existentialexile.blogspot.com/

Don't think I'll be back that way for a while; when you headed South America way? Must be amazing still being at the forefront of the opening of Vietnam. Will definitely add you to the blogroll.

Great posters!
England to India in 6 days?? As much as we complain, imagine 6 days in the air, landing to refuel and eat, in the air again. Air travel has really progressed.

Love your VTP posts!

Brian: Thanks, dude! I guess six days isn't much compared to a three-week sea voyage, but that must have been agony (especially stopping in dry, dusty places like Iraq, with no A/C).

Passport: Thanks a lot. I enjoy digging up these old posters, so stay tuned.

I'm yet to visit South America, so it's interesting to hear you say this. Do you think you'd say the same in another fifteen years?
