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.

A bright, geometric, abstract, kaleidoscopic view of Times Square, with its billboards, signs, lights, traffic, energy and excitement; in electric shades of orange, fuchsia, yellow, blue and green. This is the rare, first printing of the poster which features a detailed image of a TWA Constellation. Later versions depict the silhouette of a jet plane. A year after it was issued, a copy of this poster was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art. Metzel p. 166.
