  • Leysin - Air Et Soleil is a c. 1930 French Travel advertisement by Jacomo Muller. The poster emphasizes the health benefits of travel to Leysin, Switzerland. The image depicts a carefree woman joyfully leaping in front of the snowy mountain range bathed in sunlight. Underneath the figure the copy makes note of the high altitude and reminds the viewer of the medical benefits. These include “treatment for tuberculosis in all its forms”, and as well as a great place for medical recovery from illnesses. The bottom of the poster notes that the destination is easily accessible via the Aigle-Leysin train.
     
    Leysin has a history as a sunny alpine resort village located at the eastern end of Lake Geneva near Montreux, Lausanne and Geneva. In the earlier part of the 20th century, Leysin was known for its sanatoriums for tuberculosis. Today the predominantly French speaking village's economy centers on its ski resorts and outdoors year round sporting activities.
