"Faster Than The Sun" 

This is a truly special piece. What at first looks like a wildly-cool two-dimensional piece unfolds to become three-dimensional. Bezombes uses human anatomy and physics diagrams to prove the technological feat of Air France. The poster is a technological feat itself! Even setting aside the unique structure, the colors of this poster are just wonderful, deep blue and teal hues mixed with bright orange and reds.

Year: c. 1981

Artist: Roger Bezombes

Printer: Mourlot

In the early 1970s, Air France commissioned Roger Bezombes to do a series of posters advertising travel with the airline. Bezombes was a multi-media French artist who was known for his vibrantly colored pieces that rivaled the works of the post-impressionists. His quasi-abstract posters are filled with an amazing array of details, from different textures to hidden images. He held an obsession with found objects, creating a new type of collage. Bezombes was talented in many fields — working not only with graphic design, but fashion and sculpting, these mediums often bled into his poster work, forming his own distinct style.
