Flight Tag Prints

Flight Tag Prints-1-Design Crush

 

Airport codes have always fascinated me, the fact that three little letters assigned to each location are responsible for keeping the entire system organized the world over. Pretty amazing. Neil Stevens seemingly agrees, he’s created a series of flight tag prints based on vintage luggage tags dating back to the 1950s. Which one is your favorite? (You can purchase each by clicking the BUY button on the lower right of each image.)
