The poster measures 23. 5 inches by 39 inches and would look great in a travel agency, and international setting or a large conference center.
Printed by the Imprimerie Chaix-Desfossé Neogravure, which was formed by the merger of two important printers; l'Imprimerie Chaix and l'Imprimerie E. Desfossés Néogravure in 1965. Interestingly, l'Imprimerie Chaix is the very same printer famous for having produced the Maîtres de l'Affiche (256 color lithographic prints celebrating the work ninety-seven artists, put together by Jules Chéret, considered by many to be the father of poster art).
This poster may capture the interest of many a collector with its hommage to Israel through the abstract artwork of Raymond Pagé, its iconic airline format and its connection to the greater history of antique posters.
