DescriptionBlack Journey (A.B. Biografernas, 1926). Swedish One Sheet (28" X 39.5").
Originally conceived as a publicity stunt for his automotive company, André Citroën planned a grand trek from North Africa to West Africa in a mere twenty days, with its travelers enjoying the best amenities and hotels along the way. When plans fell through due to corporate intrigue from a rival auto company, Citroën bounced back with an even more ambitious scheme, turning the sightseeing tour into an expedition of immense size, stretching from Algiers down to Cape Town in South Africa. Rather than wealthy patrons, Citroën brought along geologists, botanists, zoologists, cartographers, cinematographers, artists, and anthropologists to document their findings. The expedition shot approximately 27,000 kilometers of film, edited down into this 70 minute educational feature, which was released across Europe. It's Heritage's first time to offer this title, with this Swedish poster showcasing a beautiful portrait in brilliant hues. Slight signs of handling include edge wear with small tears and nicks, a minor crossfold separations, and a few light creases. Folded, Very Fine.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
