Inspiring Travel Prints to Satisfy Your Wanderlust
We’re taking some time this week to reminisce over the trips we’ve taken this season and the travel art that inspires the coming journeys we’re already planning.
American Travel Art and Vintage Poster Art
In 2010, our poster art team and award-winning illustrators began creating travel posters of our favorite American cities illustrated in the style of The Golden Age of Poster Art (early to mid-20th Century).
Since then, we have created over 300 different designs celebrating the history and charm of America’s most beloved cities, natural wonders, and destinations. If you’re looking for inspiration for your next American road trip, this collection is for you.
World Travel Art and Retro Art
Around the same time we launched our American Travel collection, Anderson Design Group decided to create classic travel posters featuring our favorite destinations around the globe. Our World Travel Poster series now features a poster for every country in Central America, South America, North America, Asia, Europe, and Africa.
And we will continue our quest to produce designs that celebrate the most beloved cities and destinations on every continent! Rendered in the classic look of the Golden Age of Travel Posters, our adventurous designs will help you celebrate your favorite memories and share your journeys. Collect and display a print from each place you’ve visited, or create a gallery of the dream destinations on your bucket list. If you’re a globetrotter like us, this collection is for you!
63 American National Park Art and Wilderness Illustrations
Inspired by the iconic WPA-commissioned artwork of the early 1900s, our National Park poster series is meant to conjure nostalgia through design, to celebrate our American heritage and the gift of unbridled nature with pencil, brush, and stylus. The talented artists of Anderson Design Group are finishing what the WPA began, hand-illustrating original travel poster designs for all of our National Parks.
Whether creating a bucket list or remembering the family road trip of a lifetime, these handcrafted works are perfect for any living or office space, rustic cabin, or uptown suite. And if you’re planning a 2023 National Parks trip, this collection of National Park art is the perfect place to become inspired.
Travel Art, Wall Decor, and Wander Prints of American National Monuments and Natural Wonders
America’s National Monuments, State Parks, and other natural wonders are worth visiting. Inspired by the success of our critically-acclaimed National Park poster series, the artists of Anderson Design Group have been applying the same passion, technique, craftsmanship, and care to each illustrated poster design in this new series dedicated to favorite American scenic places.
If you want to go off the beaten path and explore some of America’s hidden gems and wilderness treasures, this collection is for you.

Different Ways to Decorate with Vintage Art and Travel Posters
“Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.” -Amy Lowell
We often find it tricky to nail down our feelings and emotions about vintage travel poster art. But that quote by Amy Lowell is a good place to start. Anderson Design Group was created to foster a collective of artists dedicated to preserving the traditions of vintage travel poster art. Joel Anderson spearheaded the mission, starting the design firm in his attic with a business partner in 1993. Since then, our group has grown to include several artists from different backgrounds. But there’s one thing we all have in common: our love for vintage poster art.
Over the years, ADG has found that folks across the country and the world love vintage art and travel posters, and they especially appreciate having options in how they style their homes with their favorite travel art. Decorating with vintage poster art usually means purchasing several posters, perhaps a few retro metal signs, and a large canvas banner to serve as a room’s centerpiece. A framed, vintage postcard looks excellent on any mantle or desk, and a refined vintage-looking canvas can be a great addition to an office or study.
Here are all the ways you can get inspired with ADG’s travel art, available as canvas prints, vintage art prints, framed art, mini canvases, metal signs, posters, postcards, notecards, and landscape posters:
Art Prints. Without a doubt, our most popular artwork is our vintage posters. Starting at just $16.99 and available framed or ready-to-frame, these posters are a fantastic way to decorate in vintage style without paying vintage prices. And with over 3,000 designs, the ADG vintage poster art collection has something for every style or taste.
Retro Metal Signs. Many customers order their favorite Anderson Design Group artwork as metal signs for a cool, stylish combination of vintage and retro art styles. These rustic-looking, retro-styled signs are made of high-quality, premium-coated steel. The weather-proof inks never rust or wear, making these signs perfect for indoor and outdoor decor.
Canvas Prints. Many of us first think of a canvas when we think of fine art. The canvas is almost ubiquitous in art; with paintings and designs, canvases have been the prime portrayal of art for centuries. With the significance of art canvases in our hearts and minds as artists, we made sure to make every single one of our 3,000+ vintage designs available on a canvas format. That means all of our collections, from National Parks to National Monuments/Natural Wonders, American Travel to World Travel, Spirit of Nashville to American State Pride, are chock-full of art available for purchase as classy, stylish, refined, hand-stretched, premium canvases.
Mini Canvases. Perfect for little spaces like desks, mantels, and shelves, our easel-backed mini canvases can help you make a big statement in a small space! Made by the same American craftspeople who make our large canvases, these little gems are handcrafted and made to order. They are available in 5” x 7” and 8” x 10”.
Postcards. Whether you use them to correspond with a pen pal or to decorate when you’re tight on wall space, ADG’s postcards measure 4.5” x 6” and are produced with state-of-the-art digital printing methods on acid-free paper. And the best thing is that all 3,000+ of our designs are available as postcards! Our classic postcards are perfect for collecting, sharing, or decorating when you’re limited in space. They’re also a bride-to-be’s dream – use our postcards for Save the Dates and reception place markers.
Notecards. Personal notecards come from the heart; there’s no classier way to say thank you than with top-notch stationery. Our 4.5” x 6” folded notecards are produced with state-of-the-art digital printing methods on acid-free paper. (They measure 9” x 6” when opened.) You’ll be correspondence-ready right out of the box: white envelopes are included with all notecard orders. All of our 3,000+ designs are available as drop-dead gorgeous notecards.
