Vintage French travel poster for les Escalades, an urban area in the small European country of Andorra. Illustrated on the poster is a lazy summer scene, the European wealthy relaxing on a sunny hotel porch, a magnificent view of the Pyrenees mountains just behind them. The vivid yellow and reds on this poster are especially impressive.
