Bally has an exceptionally strong heritage in graphic design with many highly acclaimed posters, with this, one of the very best. Excoffon’s confident, caligraphic brush strokes create an almost aerodynamic design of simple, supreme elegance. The harmony between the design and the product is wonderful example of form and function – this is an absolutely stunning poster.
Although Excoffon was more famous for the visual art of writing via his various font designs, he also produced posters for some of the most prestigious clients including SNCF, Air France, and Bally.
This poster is unusual in its use of the landscape format, a rarity for European advertising posters. It is in reasonable condition with a couple of roll creases evident which could be removed once backed on linen. It is an exceptional poster.
