Travel poster details
This is an original vintage travel poster design by contemporary artist Henry Rivers. Inspired by vintage travel advertising of the 20th century, Henry illustrates the world’s best-loved places with cool colours, playful details and a minimalist style.
Vintage travel poster of the Himalaya mountain range in Asia. Home to the highest peaks on the planet, this vast group of mountains includes the famous Mount Everest (with an elevation of 8,848 metres), which sits centrally in this artwork. In the foreground a girl is trekking through a wildflower meadow, admiring the magnificent view from the shade of a tree.
After visiting the Himalayas Henry was inspired to try and capture their vastness and beauty in this design. Working in collage style he has used a variety of hand painted textures in soft pastel colours to illustrate the ridges fading into the distance . The Himalaya mountains sit between the Northern edge of India, continental China, Nepal and Bhutan. The text reads simply “Visit the Himalayas”.
