NASA is in the travel agent business again! JPL released travel posters for Mars, Venus, Jupiter, and several moons. They explore some different styles from the first set, and are cool as hell. Below are some of the preview sizes. They are available to download free at high res, suitable for printing up to 20″ x 30″.
And if you’re a vintage poster enthusiast like me, also check out the Library of Congress site. Tons of WPA posters are available free at high res, among other historical documents. (Beware, though, their site requires patience. It’s not organized for quick browsing, but there are some real gems in their collection. I linked to some of my favorites in this old post. I decorated my bathroom with them. Yes, I have a poster about syphilis in my bathroom.) And finally, the National Parks posters are amazing vintage posters, though they aren’t free. I just made a few of my own last week.
This is great marketing for NASA. As you suggest in your response to my ‘Wild Humans’ post, we might want to send a poster into space encouraging aliens to visit our planet. Although Stephen Hawking would probably opposite it … they might like it too much and decide it needs remodeling.
I do my best to help them spread the word. Great science advertising, awesome art, and a flavor of science fiction. Right up my alley.
