Mario Borgoni became the artistic director of Richter & Sons in 1905. The printing company's persistent salesmen traveled around Europe and the Middle East convincing local hotels to use their services. Borgoni's own poster design career brought forth stunning views of Italy, Greece and Egypt in his inimitable Italian Liberty style. His trademark posters feature decorative frames married with decorative text that is deserving of the landscapes they envelop. This is the English version.
