    Description

    TWA New York Travel Poster (1958). David Klein Full-Bleed Poster (25" X 40") Prop Plane Style.
    Illustrator David Klein's (1918-2005) big break came in the 1950s when he began working for Howard Hughes' Trans World Airlines (TWA), creating posters that embodied the spirit of post-war air travel. In this fine example of Klein's work, the Big Apple twinkles and shines brightly with pops of neon colors as a Lockheed L 1049 Super Constellation glides past. This poster is a superb remnant from one of the advertising industry's most transformative eras, and enjoyed so much popularity that TWA reissued this eye-catching image in 1960 with a soaring jet and in 1967 with an "Up, Up and Away!" logo at the bottom. There are few flaws to be found in this amazing vibrant poster, receiving the highest grade available to linen-backed posters with minor touchup to a small bend in the upper left corner and a faint diagonal crease in the lower left. Very Fine+ on Linen.
