A fantastic and highly collectible Twiggy inpired poster for England just screams the late 1960s.
From Poster Auctions International: "With a mod haircut and Twiggy eye makeup, our Pan Am lass is the quintessence of 1960s cool. At the time, her Union Jack eyes likely captivated stylish travelers; today, she’s a perfectly retro encapsulation of the era."
In the sixties and early seventies, Pan Am produced posters that captured the free-flowing easy going vibe of the times. Mostly one-offs, these posters fit the era either through subject matter, artistic design, typography and or mood. While not connected to a specific artist or poster series, the "Groovy Art and Logos" grouping definitely fit the transition from the 1960s to the 1970s when Pan Am brought the 747 to commercial aviation.
