SAS Vintage Poster

SAS Vintage Travel Poster
Graphic Design by JØRLEIF UTHAUG
Published in 1956

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.

Utilizing a particularly wide swath of paper around the globe, Uthaug combines all of the elements of other planisphere, route map posters. Surrounding the globe, depicted according to "Dr. A. Refsdal's global map projection," the artist presents constellations, monuments, landmarks, local peoples and ethnic flavor, all attractively packaged in a modern, neon, almost day-glow pastiche.
