015355_POS1_022

This is an original 1947 halftone print of an advertising poster for American Airlines travel to Mexico. Artist: E. McKnight Kauffer.

Period Paper is pleased to offer a fascinating collection of prints (both color and black and white) of the finest examples of poster advertising art of 1946 as judged by J. I. Biegeleisen. Although as "mini posters" they are but a fraction of the size of the original, their powerful graphic designs combined with a succinct advertising message make them highly collectible pieces for the popular cultural historian, the poster art collector, or for the person simply interested in the nostalgic appeal of these images of cultural Americana. Each item is very well preserved and would look magnificent framed.
