SET OF VINTAGE SABENA POSTERS BRUSSELS NEW YORK 1950
Price: $1500.00
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 - like this pair for the Belgian air carrier Sabena - the posters had to grab your attention, and make you want to travel. This is an a wonderful pair of posters illustrating the Brussels- New York corridor which Sabena travelled: one poster showing the Brussels-New York leg, the other showing the New York- Brussels Leg. They are mirror images of each other, and use crisp design and graphic language which would not be out of place today. ''SABENA was the national airline of Belgium from 1923 to 2001, with its base at Brussels National Airport. After its bankruptcy in 2001, the newly-formed SN Brussels Airlines took over part of SABENA''s assets in February 2002, which then became Brussels Airlines. The airline had its corporate headquarters in the Sabena House on the grounds of Brussels Airport in Zaventem.''(wikipedia) Each poster measures 25.5 x 37.5 inches, each is pristine (the Brussels-New York poster is mounted on linen while the other is not), and they are being sold as a pair. The posters come from the private collection of a noted collector, author and poster expert and have been in his possession since they were printed over 50 years ago. They will frame up beautifully and are 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! We are happy to ship worldwide - please note that the price listed for international shipping is for standard surface mail delivery - international courrier costs for FedEx, DHL, UPS or other companies will be quoted at the time of purchase, based on the buyer''s location.
