Air Afrique Vintage Travel Poster
Graphic Design by Bernard Villemot
Published in 1966

We will be featuring some rare vintage travel posters dating back to the period between the 1920's and 1980's. Most of them are stunning examples of beautiful graphic design. This poster will be up for auction at "rare and important travel posters" auction at Swann Auction Galleries in New York City on November 18th.

Air Afrique had a forty year history, from 1961 to 2001. The company was originally a multi-way joint venture between Air France, UAT (Union Aéromaritime de Transport) and eleven former French colonies in West Africa that were all newly independent nations. For this poster, Villemot provides the viewer with an animal as colorful and exotic as the subcontinent itself. Villemot 203.
