Back in the late 30s and early 40s the US Government spent an unprecedented amount of money furthering the arts as an effort to boost the economy during the Great Depression. Out of the Federal Arts Project branch of the Works Progress Administration came some of the most beautiful posters ever created for our National and State Parks, screen printed in the art deco stylings of the day. Now, Steven Thomas is channeling that gloriously creative time, creating travel posters for the famed Star Wars galaxy.[see_also]
Thomas’ posters are mostly pitch perfect, pulling from the limited color palettes and bold shape driven detailing of that bygone era’s style. His advertisements have the same optimistic outlook of the era too, with tag lines which call to the adventurer in all of us and speak of a place full of beautiful things to discover. If you’re looking for galactic travel inspiration in the form of a poster, head to Thomas’ store at zazzle.com, then look to stevethomasart.com for his site full of vintage inspired design.
