Every year Tivoli Gardens (or simply Tivoli) lets a Danish artist design the poster art for the coming season.
The art for the poster of 1988 was created by Peter Bysted and visualizes two white doves flying together. The dove on top has the colorful pattern of Harlequin's suit - a figure who is widely connected to the Tivoli Gardens. In the back of the doves is (what I believe to be) a map of Tivoli with all its lights glowing up the park at night.
Tivoli Gardens was founded in 1843 and is located in Copenhagen, Denmark and is one of the oldest and most famous amusement parks in the world. The gardens try to stay true to the magic of the past and is try to differ from the conventional amusement parks by stating that they have nothing made out of plastic.
This poster comes from a large private poster collection containing thousands of vintage posters. The previous owner was a lithograph and collected all sorts of posters during his entire life from art posters to political posters and festival posters to travel posters. Some of the posters he got from his network and some was even collected from the streets.
The previous owner kept most of his posters in huge books and attached the posters with adhesive tape in the corners so they would stay in place. I brought some of the collection and now some of the best posters from the collection is up for sale. Some of the posters was made in very small quantities which makes most of the posters quite unique and hard to find.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
