The Federal Art Project, part of the New Deal’s Work Progress Administration (WPA), created over 2,000 posters between 1936 and 1943. Artists used bold colors and gorgeous typography to produce posters that promoted reading, advertised events, and warned against fake doctors.

My favorites? The travel posters. Take a look at these 13—and try not to feel overwhelmed with wanderlust.
