Condition A.

To promote the first International Import Fair held in Frankfurt after World War I, Hohlwein renders a spectacular nighttime scene. A train, dramatically seen from below, crosses a bridge and drops flyers that are, in fact, flags of the different countries participating in the fair. Hohlwein uses the white of the paper to make the text and several of the flyers ingeniously stand out from the dark coloration of the poster. This is the larger version. Hohlwein / Munich 235, Hohlwein / Stuttgart 176, Hohlwein pl. 97, Zwanziger Jahre p. 23.
