Bata sf9.90, 1944

Birkhauser, Peter poster: Bata sf9.90

Birkhauser was successful in attracting many of Switzerland’s leading advertisers, including Bata, the Czech company that was the world’s leading shoe exporter. This striking Object Poster is both direct and beautiful – its graceful composition and rich textures are a marvel of printing and design. The overall effect is so dramatic, so unusual, and so elegant that it would stop viewers in their tracks.

This poster was a Swiss Poster of the Year award winner in 1944.
