POSTER OF THE MONTH - January 2019

original vintage Boccasile graphic Crociere Estate 1935
Gino Boccasile
11" x 8 1/4"
An object lesson on the truth that not all great graphic art comes in standard poster format, our heart-of-winter summer dream, by the amazing, Gino Boccasile, stops you in your tracks, if you have a heart for graphic design!
Like a great cinematographer, with an eye to Surrealism, our visual guide positions the traveler somewhere strange. Her disposition, therefore, of worshiping the sun, becomes as much a question of which sun, than catching some rays. I love how this lowly and towering travel brochure deploys the fold-up structure to show two species of seagulls--one we well know, and another kind you won't see on planet Earth.
This being a thirties transaction in the Mediterranean, the seduction of African and Middle-Eastern places, like Egypt, Tunisia, Lebanon and Algeria, includes trolling for what might soon be Italy's. Therefore, the siren call vignette carries an extra pop.
We can't leave this haunt of exotic seduction, without marvelling at, over and above the supernal composition and modelling, the color display. You can't surpass something like this.
