About The Poster: First-time visitors to the Alsace region of France will feel as if they are looking at a movie backdrop. Cities like Strasbourg beckon with their rich architectural heritage which embraces styles from the Medieval, Renaissance, Romantic and Art Nouveau eras.
Towns are mazes of narrow streets and alleys that beckon you to wander and look up at the rooflines and steeples. The reflections of half-timbered houses with sloping roofs, reminiscent of those seen in fairytales, recur in the many waterways surrounding and running through the region. Cascades of brightly colored flowers hang over balconies and bridges. At every turn, you will want to stop and take photographs.
But if you can't do that, you might want to purchase this fabulous map, made in 1948. Super detailed, vibrantly colorful and full of panache, this poster will look wonderful when it is framed.
Recently linen-backed and in very good condition.
