Great art deco summer lithography!
The poster depicts a Danish summer at the beach with the sun beaming out its heat which looks like bits of heat crystals in the sky. The artist surly made everything he could to make this a hot poster.
If you speak Danish you would know that the poster is advertising "summer books" from the major Danish publishing house, Gyldendal.
The poster was designed by Thor Bøgelund (1890-1959), a Danish cartoonist, educated at the Academy of Fine Arts 1909-14. Bøgelund's early posters were inspired by a simplicity and deep crisp colors. Later in his career Bøgelund was more influence of the international art deco. From 1914-58 he was associated with Tivoli Gardens and made several posters for the old Copenhagen amusement park.
A very stylish art deco travel poster that will bring much joy in any room it might be placed in.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
