Additional Information: Original lithographic poster printed in colors, This original color lithographic poster was created in 1928 for NYK Line's first passenger ship by the English maritime painter Harry Hudson Rodmill. The Asama Maru was one of NYK's finest ships often referred to as the "Queen of the Sea". She sailed from Yokahama to San Francisco and her main ports of call included Hong Kong, Shanghai, Honolulu and Los Angeles. She set the record for the fastest crossing of the Pacific on her fourth voyage.

This rare vintage poster, before letters, has fresh colors and minor wear at the edges. Its horizontal format allows us to view the full ship as it leaves the harbor and its tugboat guide. It is an excellent example of shipping poster art.
