Amazing Posters Designed by Roger Broders in the 1920s and ’30s

Born 1883 in Paris, French illustrator and artist Roger Broders was best known for his travel posters promoting tourism destinations in France, typically fashionable beaches of the Côte d’Azur and skiing resorts in the French Alps in the early 20th century.

Broders’ illustrations were distinctive for their simple lines and bold, flat areas of color, combined with noticeable graphical perspective showing the featured mountains and seascapes in the background. Broders’ illustrations depicting people show active elongated figures wearing elegant, contemporary clothes. His posters were simply and boldly lettered identifying the destination, and were supplemented with a brief slogan.

From 1922 to 1932, Broders fully dedicated himself to poster art, though overall he produced fewer than 100 posters. Lithographs of Broders’ travel posters are still available commercially. During the 1940s, he illustrated four of the works of the German author Karl May which were published by Éditions Mame at Tours in France in French language.

Broders died in 1953 in Paris at the age of 70. Here below is a set of amazing posters designed by Roger Broders in the 1920s and 1930s.
