Additional Details

In 1973, Charles Butler Associates commissioned Peak to do a series of murals for the backs of the TWA movie screen murals. The rave reviews from both the agency and the airline led to more work including a series of menu covers for the airline as well as other publications including the Getaway Adventures guides. The 60 pieces he created for them, with their distinct wrap-around cover designs which employed the bright, Pop Art and psychedelic colors and style of the day, cemented TWA's brand recognition and broadened Peak's exposure.
