A truly legendary poster from the dawn of professional soccer!
This is the original official vintage poster from the World Cup hosted by Spain in 1982. Italy won the tournament by a 3-1 victory over West Germany. Spain was surprisingly eliminated in the second round to much frustrations for the football-loving country.
The graphics for the poster was made by Miro. In the 1980s Miro made a few different posters to promote Spain as a tourist destination and the text "España" was then adopted as a logo for the Spanish Tourist Board.
Joan Miro (1893-1983) was a Catalan painter whose surrealist works are some of the most original of the 20th century. He is mainly known for playfully distorted animal forms, twisted organic shapes and odd geometric constructions in public places - for example his ceramic walls the UNESCO building in Paris and the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum in Ludwigshafen. Miro also created several monumental sculptures which is erected among other places in Barcelona and Chicago.
