Paz la Route d'Auvezqne. Admiring the Original "Le Puy En - Velay" Vintage Poster The exquisite vintage poster for the old city of Le Puy En - Velay has inspired many art aficionados. Created by artist Philippe Kappelin, this lithograph provides a breathtaking view of the ancient city from a rooftop perspective. The poster is part of a long tradition of French SNCF travel posters, and in recent years, it has experienced something of a renaissance. Le Puy En - Velay is a commune in south-central France in the Auvergne region. It could be said that its history dates back to as early as the prehistoric era, with signs of human habitation dating as far back as the Paleolithic. It holds particular historical importance in the region, and this poster honors and preserves its past. The image depicts the old city of Le Puy as taking in the morning sun. Spreading out beneath its walls lies an intricate network of winding streets and alleyways, the bright white of their buildings contrasting sharply with the deep greens and browns of the surrounding hills and mountains. Its red-tiled rooftops draw a red thread through the entire image, while in the foreground, a single white tower rises over the city. When viewing the poster, we can't help but be drawn in by the detailed and meticulous detail of Kappelin's work. Every element has been carefully crafted to create a sense of scale and depth, inviting the viewer to explore the city from the height from which its creator must have stood as they captured its beauty. Hoisting it onto a wall in one's home or workspace next to one's favorite works of art would be a great way to honor the locality and appreciate the singular artistry.
