Falcucci's career spanned multiple decades and several thematic milieux, some of his best works being for automobile companies. Essentially an "object poster" for the DMC thread company (still in business today), in line with his other product advertisements of the 30s, is punctuated by bright colors on black backgrounds, conveying the effect of a neon sign.
