    Description

    David Klein TWA Rome Advertising Poster (TWA, 1960). Poster (25" X 40"). Miscellaneous.
    This poster by American illustrator David Klein, the darling of Madison Avenue at the height of his popularity, is from a wildly successful 1960s ad campaign for TWA. Klein won many awards from the Society of Illustrators for his TWA work, including one for this fabulous collage of Roman images featuring the Swiss Guard, the Colosseum and the Vatican. An unrestored poster that may be slightly brittle due to age, show some paper loss or staining, and/or some very slight fading to colors. It is most likely in need of some degree of work or restoration. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Rolled, Very Good+.
