BOUCHER, Lucien.
Air France. Paris: Perceval for Air France, 1962. Chromolithograph, image 600 x 955mm. Minor repairs, laid on archival backing.
An oval map of the world on an azimuthal projection centred on Paris, marking the Air France routes, with vignettes representing the various destinations. In the borders around the world are figures representing the constellations and the planets, except for Neptune, who is in the sea. Lucien Boucher (1889-1971), known as 'Monsieur Planisphere' because of his witty maps, produced posters for Air France nearly thirty years. This is one of his last ones, created when he has in his early seventies.
