Notes   Tour Metallique de Fourvieres. Original. This is a sensational image from Hugo d'Alesi, a very talented posterist. The image is `very 3-dimensional, rich with detail. This poster has been archivally linen-mounted.
This example is Lyon, Tour Metallique de Fourvières. Panorama de la Ville et de ses Enviorns. Vue de Mont-Blanc des Alpes et des Cévennes. This poster is typical of the artist's work. Among the designers who did travel posters, d'Alesi was not only the most prolific, but, according to French poster expert Alain Weill, also the most meticulous; to get just the right shading or minute detail of the scene, he insisted on making the printer use more plates than customary---sometimes as many as twenty. The results, however, are truly spectacular.
