Additional Information: Original travel poster: TAI / Australie Jet DC-8. ca. 1963. Linen backed and in fine condition. Artist: Seguin. Printer: Hénon Paris Before there was Air France, there was TAI—Transports Aériens Intercontinentaux—a private French airline based at Paris' Orly Airport. In the 1950s, it offered a modest number of international destinations, but by the 1960s, its reach was worldwide. The American Douglas DC-08 allowed for trips to such far-reaching locales as Sydney, Australia. And while we can't endorse hitchhiking koalas to cruise by tail fin, the image is certainly charming enough. This original travel poster shows a smiling koala bear holding onto the tail of a DC-8; his luggage is resting on the tail wing. Below is a crystal blue beach with people sunbathing and swimming. This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is professional acid-free conservation mounted and in very good condition.
