      FRANCIS BERNARD (1900-1979) TRAVEL WHILE SLEEPING / YOU WILL ARRIVE RESTED AND FRESH. Circa 1930.
      39x24 inches, 99x61 cm. Editions Paul-Martial, Paris.
      Condition B+: repaired tears, minor restored losses, creases and restoration in margins, some affecting image; creases, abrasions and restoration along horizontal fold.
      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 √Čtoile du Nord poster, Bernard puts the names of the different railways around the border of the poster.
