Air India vintage travel posters
I stumbled across this image today on Pintrest and fell MADLY in love with it. I'm crazy over hot pink, turquoise, chartreuse...India...elephants...and now this little Maharajah guy. (The official mascot of Air India). Some of these images are available as reproductions from Amazon and All Posters, among others. But I can't find the hot pink elephant! (Frown) . Most are from the 50s and 60s, under the art direction of J. B. Cowasji, Air India Design Studio, Bombay. The hot pink elephant seems to be up for auction in a private auction house, price upon request.
Every one I have seen is just delightful, but this one has to be my favorite! Maharajah has quite an eye for the ladies!!!!
