      LOWEREE (DATES UNKNOWN) 'ROUND THE WORLD / 'ROUND THE CLOCK / VIA PAN AMERICAN. 1955.
      42 1/4x28 1/2 inches, 107 1/4x72 1/2 cm.
      Condition A / A-: creases and minor tears at edges, some slightly into image. Paper.
      A complex design involving a sundial and a projection of the world, which manages to efficiently convey its message despite its intricate detail. Stylistically, this poster is exceptional for Pan American, as most of their posters from this era featured their planes and/or one of their destinations. Although no information can be found about this artist aside from a few other travel poster designs, it seems clear that they are following the Modernist trend set by Abram Games for BEA posters from the same period.
