Description: NORDMAN (DATES UNKNOWN) EGYPT CALLS YOU / EGYPTIAN STATE RAILWAYS. Circa 1930.
39 1/4x23 1/2 inches, 100x59 3/4 cm. Amirayan & Co., Cairo.
Condition B+: extensive repaired tear at top edge into image; repaired tears, creases, abrasions, time-staining and minor restoration in margins and text, some affecting image.
While the rails and some of the typography converging into the distance along the perspective lines is consistent with prevailing European graphic design at the time, the head-on view of the locomotive without any perspective is novel and unexpected. This is the English version. Voyage p. 125 (var).
