Normandie & Bretagne

France is renowned for priding itself on its rich culture and treasure trove of a historical repertoire; all of which continue to rank it as a top tourist destination since the inception of railway travel in the early 19th century.

The French Railway System (SNCF) was founded in 1928 during an era where cars were becoming more popular than trains. Due to this, the SNCF sought out on its mission to encourage tourism and train transport to cut down on harmful automobile emissions and traffic. They did thi by commissioning some of France's top artist to embark into a newfound realm of captivating travel posters.

This gorgeous 1957 Normandie & Bretagne travel poster was designed by Constant Duval and features a breathtaking view of Le Chateau Gaillard (the Gaillard Castle) ruins in Les Andelys, Normandie. Duval does an expert job of illustrating a serene pastoral scene with touches of warm light present throughout. The Ombre gradient found to the exterior of the ruins waists no time in inviting you directly into its radiant, golden core. What a fabulous work of art! Printed by F. Champenois, Paris.

This striking piece of history is the perfect addition for the travel lover or Francophile in your life.
