Poster design for a Spanish railway guide, artist anonymous, ca. 1900.
Description: With an obvious nod to Mucha, this anonymously created Art Nouveau design romantically depicts the wonder of the Eraso train guide. Updated monthly, this Spanish-language volume is one’s best reference for rail information, taking you all over Europe. The initials of the company are repeated in the hypnotic pattern on her dress, while, in the text panel on the left, a heavily superfluous testimonial for all those still needing to be convinced of the guide’s.
