This original travel poster dated 1949 is part of the Air France Corsica travel series. It was printed by the Perceval studio and designed by Lucien Boucher (1889-1971), an artist known for the Planisphere series he designed between 1934 and 1963 for the same company as well as for the illuminations he created for these vintage travel posters. His embellished maps are filled with small illustrations, be it for the old Indochina maps or his world maps for the Red Cross or airline companies. He chose to depict here the needle of Bavella, the creeks of Piano, as well as Calvi, Ajaccio, Bastia or Bonifaccion seen as small rustic villages. This Air France post-war campaign introduces its new airmail distribution service. In 1949, Corsica was a focus point for Air France, who went on to commission two posters the same year, including one by the artist known as Eric similarly inspired by the legendary Isle of beauty.
