A year after it was first issued, a version of this poster was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art for their permanent collection and also resides in the Library of Congress. A true work of art. This version of the poster has the tagline “Up Up and Away TWA” in a triangular shape on the lower right corner. This poster is a must-have for collectors of air travel posters, TWA memorabilia, and those with an interest in mid-century modern décor. No tears or holes. Minor extremely small brown spot on lower left corner; a very small, slight discoloration in one blue panel area; and slight raised area where tape was removed in one spot on bottom left corner.
