A dramatic, minimalist series of France's famed Mont Blanc, framed between the silhouetted slopes of tree-lined hills. The graphic, zipper-like train track serves to both open up the mountain to view and lead the eye towards the focal point. Posted side-by-side, these three posters create a cinematic effect, a unique graphic concept among travel posters. Hillion p. 214, Voyage p. 35, Alps 43, Art of Skiing p. 53, Affiche Art Deco p. 54.
