A bucolic and quiet scene of the Les Grisons region of Switzerland is shown in this charming image by Alois Carigiet. This bilingual travel poster was printed by the Swiss National Tourist Bureau in 1944 to promote travel to the country. It was likely printed in both English and French to appeal to travelers from both nations, during a time of renewed travel after the end of WWII.
Alois Carigiet (1902-1985) was a Swiss illustrator and graphic designer best known for his children's book illustrations. His style is loosely influenced by Fauvism and Expressionism.

What Does 'Original' Mean?
We only deal in original vintage posters, never reproductions. This means that every poster is from the original print run, in the year listed in the description. Everything we sell comes with an individually signed certificate of authenticity, which we fully guarantee.
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.
