These 'Lost Destinations' Are Preserved Through the Nostalgia of Travel Posters




Long have I loved the travel-related prints from the UK-based studio Dorothy. They had me at their themed (songs, movies, games, etc.) maps and are growing my love for their work through Lost Destination. In their own words:
A series of nostalgic prints by Dorothy which take inspiration from the iconic travel posters of the first half of the 20th century, celebrating the unique but often forgotten beauty of buildings and places that were once destinations in their own right but have since been either demolished or immersed in the everyday.
The series currently features forgotten landmarks from around England.
