Condition Notes

Some handling wear on the edges and light signs of ageing, small 3cm tear on the bottom edge, not visible when framed. 

This poster was created in 1960 for Howard Hughes’ Trans World Airlines promoting their routes to Switzerland from the USA. Illustrated by influential American artist David Klein, this design features landmarks that you would hope to see on a trip to the country including the likes of the Alps. 

Hughes and TWA collaborated with Klein on many posters during the height of the golden-era of aviation from the 50’s through to the 70’s. These posters have become synonymous with that golden, mid-Century era of design.

This iconic poster is in mint condition, backed with museum quality linen to ensure the conservation long into the future.
