FRANCIS BERNARD (1900-1979) TRAVEL WHILE SLEEPING / YOU WILL ARRIVE RESTED AND FRESH. Circa 1930.

Although this poster is unsigned, it has been attributed to Francis Bernard. Bernard was under contract with the printing house Paul-Martial, working extensively for them as their Art Director until the Second World War. The poster stylistically bears many of his trademark design elements. Following Cassandre's innovation for his Étoile du Nord poster, Bernard puts the names of the different railways around the border of the poster.
