      ERBERTO CARBONI (1899-1984) CROCIERE 1937 / "ITALIA." 1937.

      Carboni was one of the top Milanese designers. Like so many of his Italian counterparts, he began his career working for the famed Boggeri Studio before heading out on his own. Although his largest clients manufactured basic consumer products, Carboni applied a rigorous modernism to his work, bringing an elevated sense of design to ostensibly mundane items. This joyful and sophisticated photomontage is one in a series designed by some of Italy's best graphic artists (including Marcello Dudovich, Gino Boccasile, Alberto Bianchi, Xanti Schawinsky and others) promoting the Atlantic crossings as more of a holiday than a neccessity. This is the Italian version. Plakat Kunst p. 132.
