The auctioneers' South Kensington operation have announced that they will launch a vintage travel posters and luggage auction celebrating the golden age of tourism.

Titled The Art of Travel, a selection of the works on offer will be on view at the JW Marriott Cannes throughout the film festival from May 14-25 and the auction will take place at Christie's South Kensington on June 18.
