Bruni - Plage
Original cartone
This cartone advertises a tanning lotion that softens & perfumes the skin while protecting it from the sun's rays. Small format beach poster. Ideal for a powder room. Children are playing with a large beach ball in the back ground. Maybe one of the days soon those men's full body bathing suits will come back into fashion again too!

There is something innocent and spectacular about advertising from the Art Deco period - it gets the message across so gently but yet so forcefully at the same time. What could be more significant than a couple tanning at the beach while a trio of children play ball in the background... (this before the days of damaging UV rays of course!)
