I am fortunate to be celebrating in Paris where the streets and the outdoor markets bustle. A strong emphasis on food and wine and cooking! Lines form out the door at favorite bakeries and butcher shops. The kitchen supply shops bulge with shoppers and I am in my element! So I think of the posters and the ones which I think so capture the excitement of this holiday indulging. Rene Gruau, obviously one of my favorite poster artists, has done a super job with his Pims Cake poster. Such elegance and such pleasure all from a box of cookies! And the Veuve Amiot poster byFalcucci to my mind has captured the joy of sharing a glass of champagne. Jean Carlu depicts the thrill of anticipating holiday gifts in his poster, Au Bon Marché.
This is so often a season for family travel. Whether you are off to the slopes or the traditional snow, so well represented by both Sun Valley Idaho by Union Pacific or Visitez l’USSR en Hiver or escaping the cold in favor of the sun and warmth as found in Tahiti, be safe, enjoy your family and your loved ones Happy New Year!
