We love these vintage ski posters, which evoke an era when skiing was a glamorous affair. A time when you could imagine riding the ski lift with Cary Grant then heading back to an Alpine lodge to chink Schnapps glasses with Grace Kelly. All good, clean and super-stylish fun. Light years away from the era of easyJet and Borovets pub crawls.

These gorgeously graphic depictions can be found in The Art of Skiing by Jenny de Gex (£14.99, Palazzo Editions). And if you fancy gazing on one of these elegant posters year-round, Christie’s is holding an auction of posters by the likes of French illustrator Roger Broders. It all starts tomorrow at 1pm.
