Los Angeles Public Library has a collection of beautiful travel posters from the 20s and 30s to help inspire an enviable summer vacation plan.

Prepare to abandon all thoughts of a stale, stay-at-home season  — nearly 90 posters of striking color and exotic locations have been designed to seduce your inner adventurer.

The LA Public Library describes the content and style of their Travel Posters Collection.

Selected travel posters of exotic destinations are from the collection housed in the International Languages Department and Rare Books at Central Library.

The artwork finely demonstrates the sensibilities of 1920s and 1930s Art Deco and early Futurism.

And there's plenty more to explore. The visual collections are just some of the resources LAPL has online for public searching and browsing and reading and learning and doing all the other "-ing" things one does at a physical library.
