A very nice and colorful advertising for train transport.

The poster was commissioned by Danish State Railways (DSB) in 1971 to promote container transport.

The poster says "container transport, economical transport from door to door with DSB" - in Danish.

The poster is designed by the Danish artist Aage Rasmussen (1913-75) which is world famous for his iconic lithographic posters for DSB in the 1930s and 1950s. Rasmussen experienced in many ways its heyday early in his career , as the years 1937-38 also gave him international praise with a prize of honor at the World Exhibition in Paris. Rasmussen got his breakthrough in 1937 when he proposed a poster for DSB know as the high-speed train (Lyntogsplakaten). You can find his signature along with the date of creation in the corner of the poster.
