NEW YORK FLY TWA, original vintage travel poster created by David Klein. Size 25.25" x 40". Archival linen backed in very good condition; ready to frame.

Klein is best remembered for the dozens of destination advertisements he created for TWA during the 1950s and ‘60s. For Destination New York, Klein creates a stacked perspective of some of the city’s best known sights, piling landmark upon landmark – St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Rockefeller Plaza’s Prometheus et al. – then crowning them with a bust of Lady Liberty, and the typeface of the New York Times.
(Poster Auction International indicates that this poster was done in 1955.)

Original. Mounted on acid free archival linen. This poster for New York has all the best sites to see while in NY. From the Statue of Liberty and the Rockafeller Center, to Federal Hall and St. Patrick's Cathedral. One of the very distinctive travel poster's done for TWA, by David Klein.

This New York Fly TWA is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed to preserve and protect the poster, and in excellent condition.
