His distinctly individual style set new standards of sophistication in graphic design in Australia during the 1930s and in the late 50s he created this elegant black swan poster. It was reproduced often over the next ten years and in 1968 won a bronze medal at the International Poster Competition in Milan.

This is truly an outstanding quality poster. It is printed on Fuji crystal archive photographic paper and is by no means a flimsy poster.
