Signed Antoni (for the Danish artist Ib Antoni 1929-1973), this poster was designed to advertise the Danish Pavillion at the 1964 New York World's Fair. 

Ib Antoni (1929-1973) was a well known cartoonist, designer and poster artist not only in Denmark but also abroad, where he illustrated the renown Times and Life Magazine in the USA. He created approximately 300 posters in the twenty years of his ​career. He was commissioned by a wide range of clients such as FDB, Politiken, Carlsberg, Dyrup, Volvo, Danish Agriculture, Foreign Affairs, UNICEF and others. His posters for the Fair reflect his playful, "Naive" style, for which he is known and appreciated. (Source: Permild & Rosengreen website) His work can be found in collections worldwide, such as that of the Danish Museum.

Unlined and in very good condition with minor signs of wear (obvious center fold, overall A- condition), this poster is perfect for a children's playroom, the family room, or entrance... anywhere some Danish design (with a historical twist!) is needed.
