A delightfully insouciant, playful and enticingly risque image. One of the twelve posters designed by Ungerer for Air India "to show the various cities to which its planes fly. They were very popular and Air India turned these into a . . . calendar for the year 1971" (Ungerer p. 178). Ungerer p. 179, Graphis Annual 71/72.
