The Graf Zeppelin, sister ship of the ill-fated Hindenburg, is depicted here practically spanning the Atlantic Ocean. By 1930, after several widely publicized voyages (including around the world in 1929 which made her the first airship to ever cross the Pacific Ocean non-stop), the Graf Zeppelin settled into a regular transatlantic route. When she was taken out of service in 1937, barely a month after the Hindenburg disaster, she had made a total of 143 Atlantic crossings. Several different variations of this poster exist including one which shows the route map with stops in Spain, and this copy which illustrates connections to Hamburg and Berlin. Anton is best known for the many posters he designed for German shipping lines during the 1930s including the American Line, Hamburg-America Line, Norddeutscher Lloyd-Bremen, Hamburg South America Steamship Company and Cunard. He designed two posters depicting zeppelins. This is the German version. Airlines p. 36.
