A strong depth of field is used in this elegant 1950s poster created to promote travel from Paris to Tokyo with Air France. Cherry blossom branches give way to a bucolic pagoda and countryside, with Mount Fuji rising in the background, as a Constellation Air France plane soars above it all.
Air France was formed in 1933 through a merger of several smaller international companies. These smaller airlines had already built extensive networks across the world, and when combined under the Air France umbrella they created an exciting accessibility to fliers. Air France remains one of the most highly regarded international airlines, servicing 78 countries around the world. It served as France's primary national flag carrier for seven decades prior to its 2003 merger with KLM.
Posters have always been essential to Air France’s communications. It has one of the greatest collections in the world with over 1500 posters created by the most famous illustrators. Air France posters are usually striking, with few words, and depict destinations as dream-like and air travel as making dreams come true.
