“Day Time Sun – Night Time Fun in Las Vegas”. The tag line says it all in this lovely Galli poster for United Air Lines. Galli's realistic style stands in contrast to the modernist artwork Klein produced for TWA during the same period. Both produced iconic poster artwork which exudes the youthful, relaxed glamour at the dawn of the Jet Set age. This is a classic of the genre rivalling Galli's California, Los Angeles, and Hawaii posters – all highly sought after by collectors.
There is some very small chaffing at the top left corner but that aside, it is in almost mint condition. It is free of pin holes, folding creases and the edges remain sharp and free of the nicks and wrinkles often associated with handling. It is in very good condition – a great example promoting the American dream of the mid 1950s and early 1960s
