With a vivid color explosion is how this mid-century poster was made to attract visitors to the Tierpark Berlin.

The Tierpark (meaning "animal park") was founded 1955 in former East Berlin as Berlin Zoological Garden (located in West Berlin) became impassable for the residents of the former Eastern sector in DDR. There was made a huge effort to make zoo larger, more beautiful and with rarer animals than its western counterpart. Today the Tierpark with its 160 hectares is the largest of its kind in Europe. It has about 7,500 animals spread over more than 850 species.

Overall this poster is a graphical beauty with attention to details. Notice how animated the lionfish looks and also how the corals on the bottom was made using watercolors to empathize the aquatic stage. A nice and difficult-to-find East German poster with a fine look indeed! 

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
