Product information

Australian trave poster produced c1935 for Queensland Government Tourist Bureau with offices in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. A delightful poster advertising Queensland as ‘The Tropics at Your Door’ and shows two penguins hand in hand heading off north with their suitcases. To the right is a map showing ‘The Sunshine Route’ and details various destinations such as Brisbane, Gympie, Great Sandy Island, Maryborough, Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Broad Sound, Mackay, Whitsun Island, Bowen, Townsville, Hinchinbrook Island, Innisfail, Cairns, Cooktown and The Great Barrier Reef. The artist Percy Trompf (1902-1964) was born in Victoria, Australia and began his commercial artistic career designing confectionery packaging. He also designed thousands of advertising posters but the widespread recognition of his posters for the Australian National Travel Association and the Victorian Government Railway is probably what he is most known for. His bright, colourful, optimistic pictures had wide appeal, especially during the Depression and in the 1930s his posters attracted lots of attention overseas.

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