This Monday I picked a book about "THE ART OF SKIING" written by Jenny de Gex full of vintage posters from the golden age of wintersport. In the 1930's & 1940's travel agency, winter resorts and railroad companies hired the best-known artist and graphic designers to create posters that would tempt the people to join the slopes! Those where the days of colorfull marketing. This book represent also the winter 2009/2010 which Dutch meteoroligst call a "Snow-winter"
