University of Virginia Vintage Travel Poster || adapted from Holsinger Studio photograph || November 17, 2013
After colorizing Rufus Holsinger’s photograph of the 1895 UVa Rotunda fire, I decided to revisit the iconic structure once again. This time, inspired by the spirit of travel posters by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930’s and 40’s (highlights found here), I used a photograph by Holsinger’s son, Ralph Holsinger (found here), to create UVa’s own vintage travel poster in Adobe Illustrator.
I hope you enjoy! Wahoowa!
