One of a series of posters produced by Dick Negus and Philip Sharland for BOAC. Using silkscreen printing, enhanced with bright day-glo colours and a mid-fifties atom age design provides for a striking and memorable image, with neither an aircraft nor the Speedbird logo in sight. Other posters in this series include USA, Far East, Australia and Great Britain.

 

This is the larger and scarcer format of this poster, 25" x 40". It was also issued as a 20" x 30" poster.
