Words cannot decribe the beauty of this poster. There are many great SAS posters but this one is special.
This original 1959 Scandinavia Airlines System travel poster has combined the best highlights of the Middle East and made them art. The poster features the pyramids and what appears to be the Sphinx (before the beard fell off), there is calligraphy written in gold foil and you also have mosques, towers and ancient columns. And of course we see the SAS plane which is the brand new jet plane! SAS was one of the first airliners in the world to use jet engines for commercial transportation.
Thinking of how much bigger the world was in 1959 and how few people who actually could afford a plane ticket, this poster captures the mystery of exotic destinations very well.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
