Presented here is a captivating original vintage travel poster, skillfully printed in 1961 and released by the Danish Travel Association to showcase Denmark as an alluring travel destination.
Designed by the talented artist Viggo Vagnby, this poster showcases a vibrant and intricate composition that captures the essence of various activities and tourist attractions, both during the day and at night. The poster is thoughtfully divided into two halves, symbolizing the distinction between day and night experiences. The left half, adorned with exclusive gold ink, depicts a dazzling daytime scene with enchanting castles, charming churches, picturesque rural farmhouses, a cyclist enjoying a ride on a typical Danish city bicycle, as well as a golfer and a sports fisherman. The right half portrays the lively ambiance of evening entertainment, featuring theater performances, fine dining experiences, captivating dances, melodious music, and an iconic highlight—the Copenhagen Tivoli.
Printed with an accompanying French text, this poster was specifically tailored for the French-speaking market. The words "Jours dorés Nuits argentées DANEMARK" elegantly grace the design, inviting viewers to discover Denmark's golden days and silver nights.
Despite showing signs of age wear, slight crumpling, and minor edge tears, this poster remains in overall good condition. It serves as a remarkable centerpiece for any Denmark enthusiast, beautifully adorning the walls of their home and inspiring dreams of exploring the wonders of this captivating country.
