A. M. CASSANDRE Cassandre's design for the Normandie is as powerful as it is magnificent. And in almost every respect, this Cassandre masterpiece was a new way of selling the glamour and excitement of ocean liner travel. A deceptively simple, but impressive design with the ship towering above us, a flight of small birds at the bottom, giving the image as much scale and strength as the imposing hull itself.
I've seen many of these boat, art-deco style posters, but I love this one becuase of it's use of the rectangular shap for the boat. It almost feels like a cubism piece.
