When I came across this attractive Art Deco poster advertising the German national airline Lufthansa, I was intrigued by the spelling Luft Hansa - one I had never seen before. Turns out that the Lufthansa as we know it was formed as late as 1953, but that its predecessor was indeed Luft Hansa, which started in 1926. The poster must be from around 1930.
About me: Dutchman, married to a beautiful and highly talented artist from Shanghai. Although my education (PhD chemistry) is very much associated with the left side of the brain, I like to use my right side for my hobbies: music, art, photography.
About this blog: I started this blog in August 2006, just wanting to share what I considered interesting pieces of visual art and music. I suffered from blogging blues for most of 2008, but making a fresh start in October of that year has done wonders for my inspiration. In case you did not notice, most posts end with a small symbol... just click that for the relevant link. All pictures in my blog are hosted on blogger - if some do not show up (the red cross syndrome) it is a blogger hiccup. Right click and selecting "show picture" should do the trick.
About the reconstruction:
