Not just because they showcase Portugal, but because the Art Deco designs of the posters themselves invoke a sort of nostalgic feeling for the “Golden Age of Travel”. A time when your average flight came with a three course lobster dinner and air cabins gave you a real sense of luxury and adventure.

Here are some of my top ten favorite:
