Description

    Greyhound Travel Poster (1960s). Full-Bleed Poster (28" X 38") "Spring is Gay."
    As part of the "Travel Greyhound" print campaign of the 1960s, the company commissioned artist Rod Ruth (1912-1987) to design a series of posters promoting their bus line throughout the four seasons. Heritage is pleased to offer all four or these creations in the November Signature Auction: "Fall is Vivid," "Winter Bewitches," "Summer is Fun," and "Spring is Gay." Ruth's prodigious career included work as an illustrator for Chicago based magazines, corporate advertising campaigns, children's books, the comic strip "The Toodles" from 1941-1958, and perhaps his best known work, the 1972 book Album of Dinosaurs. This original 1960s poster by Ruth trumpets spring in all its pastel perfection -- pink tree blossoms, yellow daffodils, a robin's egg blue sky -- and an actual robin perched alertly on a budding tree limb, ready to make the most of the warming temperatures. The poster is rolled and appears to never have been used. Rolled, Mint.
