1959 TWA, Los Angeles Original Vintage Poster

About the Item

This poster was created in 1959 for Howard Hughes’ Trans World Airlines promoting their routes to Los Angeles, California. Illustrated by influential American artist David Klein, this design features a wonderfully stylized view of the California sunshine over the San Gabriel bell tower and reads "Up, Up & Away!'". Hughes and TWA collaborated with Klein on many posters during the height of the golden-era of aviation from the 50s through to the 70s. These posters have become synonymous with that golden, midcentury era of design.
