Vintage Airline Art - Los Angeles, American Airlines
72 and sunny: Los Angeles in Helvetica.
A rare find—a late 1960s-1970s print from American Airlines, celebrating Los Angeles. The artist is unknown, but it was printed in the USA. The best part? Typeface aficionados will recognize American Airlines' trademark used of Helvetica. Lovers of all things 72 and sunny will recognize the Hollywood Bowl, Newport Beach, and the Chinese Theater. It's all here.
Measures 15" wide by 20" high.
Available unframed. It is linen-backed with a natural wheat paste, onto acid free paper and 15 oz. #10 cotton duck canvas to enhance and preserve its value. The backing provides structure to otherwise fragile paper, and the process greatly slows down the aging of the poster. The process is fully reversible, hence archival, and no toxic, acidic or chemical agents are used.
This is a one-of-a-kind piece of art, and not a reproduction.
