Date: 1966
Size: 24.25 x 33.5 inches
Artist: Ib Antoni 

Signed Antoni (for the Danish artist Ib Antoni 1929-1973), this poster was designed to advertise an event at the Belle Centret on "Bil & Fritid" which is Danish for "Car & Leisure". It was centered around the activities one could have fun doing with a car; the poster shows hints of camping, sailing, playing sports... and those are but a few suggestions! The poster even gives a nod to the FDM (Federation of Danish Motorists - the Danish equivalent to Canada's AAA roadside assistance company), whose initials can be found in the triangular Danish flag.

This car is crammed full of happy people - mama, papa, the kids... even a puppy in the backseat! Off to a weekend of adventure, the poster perfectly encapsulates Antoni's signature cartoon-like "Naive" style. Unlined and in good condition, it would look great in a children's playroom, the family room or entrance... anywhere some Danish design is needed.
