The Art of Skiing: Vintage Posters from the Golden Age of Winter Sport
Paperback - English

From the 19th to 20th century, skiing underwent great changes as it rose in popularity--as did the advertisements and art of the sport, which have since become collectors' itemsImmigrant Scandinavian gold miners chasing the Gold Rush mid-19th century introduced skiing to the United States. By the turn of the 20th century, skiing had emerged from its utilitarian origins to become a fashionable sport in both Europe and North America, and a wave of new, stylish resorts emerged. By the 1930s, skiing was by far the most popular winter pastime for the rich and famous--combining adventure, fashion, and exclusivity. The graphic art of the posters advertising this burgeoning sport have become collectors' items. "The Art of Skiing" is a beautiful collection of the finest examples of poster art. Organized by country and resort, it uses posters from the Beekley Collection--the largest private collection of ski art in the world--to reflect the changing trends in skiing fashion and technique, and investigates the most popular resorts, their establishment, and their development.
