By design, travel posters must express, in clear, concise and easily understandable graphic language, who the carrier is, where there destinations are, how they get there, and why you would want to use them. Whether we are talking about the great posters of the French (or Swiss, or Italian) railways from the early 1900''s, or the early Canadian Pacific Railway (or airline) posters, or mid-century airline travel posters or shipping posters - like this one for the American Export Lines - the posters had to grab your attention, and make you want to travel. Shipping companies have always played an integral part in the discovery and exploration of new lands. I first became aware of the importance of maritime posters when a collector was kind enough to consign a collection amassed over a lifetime to me- and when he did so, he accompanied each poster with detailed notes about each boat and her travels. It was then that I realized how devoted the followers of maritime and nautical ephemera are... So, for those of you who may not know ''American Export- Isbrandtsen Lines, New York, was the leading US-flag shipping company between the US east coast and the Mediterranean from 1919 to 1977, offering both Cargo ship services and Passenger ship services, until declaring bankruptcy and was acquired by Farrell Lines, New York.'' (Wikipedia) This is an a wonderful - and often reproduced - poster, signed, measuring approx. 25 x 39.5 inches, linen mounted and in pristine condition. The poster comes from the private collection of a noted collector, author and poster expert and has been in his possession since it were printed over 50 years ago. It will frame up beautifully and is magnificent. Please note that all of our posters are vintage, non-reproduction works of art. Please see our other posters, prints and ephemera. Thank you!
