Step back in time to the roaring twenties with this stunning vintage poster designed to advertise Pelican Cigarettes! Designed by talented French artist Charles Yray, this poster is a must-have for any collector of vintage tobacco memorabilia.

Charles Yray truly shows off his mastery of craft with this delightful classic. Against a vibrant green backdrop, a pelican is captured in a moment of sheer indulgence, with a cigarette hanging lazily from its beak. The bird's contented expression suggests that smoking is not just a habit, but a guilty pleasure that it truly savors. One of the most striking elements of this poster is the clever use of the bird's shadow, which is reversed to create a sense of depth and dimensionality. The colors are a visual feast, with bold contrasts of black, red, and yellow enhancing the overall impact. Bravo, bravo.

This poster is more than just a work of art - it's a conversation starter, a statement piece, and a testament to the beauty of the past. This poster is a must-have for anyone looking to add a touch of whimsy to their walls. Printed by Edia, Paris.
