An Art Deco design for the spa promoting its night life. Although the casino is small and distant, it’s brightly lit, and the dynamic graphics of the letter “V” focus our attention on it. The swank couple, allee of trees and formal fountain together evoke the elegant, entertaining evening ahead. Sponsored by the PLM.
Monday’s are much more fun with a margarita or two, some tacos, an Elote corn on the cob… and tres leches cake. I think I’ve had enough sugar to work til midnight.
This cuban cartoon character looks about as hyped on sugar as I’m feeling. Mmmm. Candy. Not what I need right now, although Rum, chocolate and cream make up the ingredients for a super tasty treat.
Animals were a favorite motif of artist Carigiet; in 1933, he used a fox in elegant sportsman’s garb, outfitted with a rifle and trademark satchel for his day of chase. Two years later in 1935 he dresses a rooster in PKZ finery so he can appropriately strut his stuff. In the course of a long career, Carigiet was a posterist, painter in oils, stage and costume designer and children’s book illustrator.
This poster represents the famous, grueling seven day endurance run which made the XK120 famous!
One of the drivers was a very young Sterling Moss. Artist Roy Nockholds designed this vintage original to be used as a Jaguar showroom poster. He dramatically captures the speed of the XK120 shooting down the track, headlights gleaming under pre-dawn sky.
