1955 TWA - The Orient Original Vintage Poster

About the Item

This poster was created in 1959 for Howard Hughes’ Trans World Airlines promoting their routes to The Orient from the USA. Illustrated by influential American artist David Klein, this design features Eastern tropes including the veil drapes and the statue figure in the centre. Hughes and TWA collaborated with Klein on many posters during the height of the golden-era of aviation from the 50’s through to the 70’s. These posters have become synonymous with that golden, mid-Century era of design.
