K.L.M. (Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij), known as the Royal Dutch Airlines, is an aviation company founded in 1919 by Albert Plesman. In 2003, K.L.M. and Air France agreed to a merger plan in which they would become subsidiaries of a holding company called Air France-KLM. K.L.M. is the oldest airline still operating under its original name to this day. In this clever design by Hermanus Berserik we see the typical tourist trappings of the fedora, camera, and postcards of European destinations . The title is reminding the viewer that KLM flies to many destinations in Europe from its base in Holland.

Hermanus (Herman) Berserik (June 19, 1921 - March 21, 2002) was a Dutch painter and print maker. He was a member of the Pulchri Studio in The Hague.
He studied art at that city's Royal Academy of Art, where his teachers included Willem Schrofer, Willem Jacob Rozendaal, and Rein Draijer. His career was spent as a teacher as well as a painter and illustrator. Much of his commercial projects were for posters for many Dutch clients, including KLM.

  • 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.
