(Suit)case Histories

Here are those luggage labels I mentioned in my previous post.  I have had these for a long time and they came from my late great uncle Robert along with lots of other ephemera from his travels abroad in the 1950's.  I have one of his old suitcases too which has remnants of labels stuck on it and I find it fascinating to imagine all the destinations he visited back then.  I love the design and typography on these old labels and I think the Norwegian viking is particularly fun!


  1. These are great. What an exciting uncle! Some of them look like they could have been drawn by you at a glance, the Hotel Sudan one in particular.

  2. Love these - ah the good old days when travel was terribly glamorous! The viking one is indeed great.
