Lawler designed a series of posters for Pan Am capturing the exotic adventure and glamour of air travel during the "golden age." Several posters from this series stand as poster icons that capture the first wave of destination tourism. Rio de Janeiro and Peru's Machu Pichu in South America, Hawaii and the South Seas across the Pacific and Wings to Europe / America are a few of the most iconic and valuable of these images. Posters in this series are very rare and hard to find in good condition.
