A wonderful Norwegian travel poster by Knut Yran promoting the north of Norway, a slight variation of the first poster printed in 1958. The text refers to the midnight sun you see behind the Sami boy with his reindeer herd in the rendering. You don't see this variation very often. This poster was the First Prize Winner in the International IUOTO (International Union of Official Travel Organizations) Poster Contest in 1959.
The poster has been printed four times. This is the forth printing from 1968. The poster is in excellent condition.
