The Southwestern state of Arizona known for its red cliffs, hot temperatures and desert scenery is perfectly captured in Fred Ludekens’ vibrant illustration. The image is a colourful pastiche of all things symbolic of an Arizonian trip, featuring a couple horseback riding through large and plentiful cacti, looking onward at the cliffs and inviting space around them.

American Airlines is a major airline based in Fort Worth, Texas. The company was founded in 1926 as a union of more than eighty small airlines and is the world's largest airline. American Airlines is a founding member of Oneworld Alliance, the largest airline alliance in the world. Through this partnership they are able to coordinate fares and services with Airlines around the world. In 2001, they acquired the well-known TWA. They still operate today out of ten major hubs in the United States.

Fred Ludekens (1900-1982) began his career as billboard painter before joining the Lord & Thomas advertising agency in 1931. Ludekens worked in a variety of media, and specialized in landscapes. He produced artwork and covers for all the major magazines of the time. He was a member of the founding faculty for the Famous Artists School, an art correspondence course founded by Norman Rockwell and other members of the New York Society of Illustrators.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
