About The Poster: A fabulous Art Deco poster advertising La Ferte Bernard, designed for the French National Railways by Commarmond.
The SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer français; "French National Railway Corporation"), is France's national state-owned railway company. Begun in 1938, it used posters from its inception to advertise the multitude of destinations which were served by its rail-lines. We feel that this poster, created shortly after the company itself was created is a wonderful testament to Art Deco design: strong colors and visuals which pop, clean graphic design and great typography. Classic! Poster is lined and in very good condition.
Pierre Commarmond created many posters for the SNCF - we are fortunate to have received a few from a private collection and will be listing them shortly.
