AIR FRANCE Travel Poster Style Advertising Postcards


Air France produced some vivid advertising poster-style postcards on matte paper with outstanding graphics.  In this post, we look at some of the vintage designs in the series.  There  are some more modern images in the Air France advertising postcards, too, but we will only show vintage images here.  Above are images for North and South America.


All the images in this post are divided back postcards with a small amount of advertising on the back and the information that the postcards are Printed in France.  Shown above are two images for Africa.  The postcards shown below have advertising urging us to visit various places, some in France and others around the world. 




The last image of elephants in tall grasses promotes travel to Africa with a dramatic illustration, one of our favorites.

PRICE ESTIMATES  These Air France travel designs have become more and more collectible in the past few years and prices now range from about $20.00 up - these are estimates for postcards in EXCELLENT condition, and they are only estimates.
