Poster for the XIII Winter Games
Offset lithograph
1979
22 x 33"

This stunning 1979 by Robert W. Whitney features an ice crystal superimposed behind an abstraction of Lake Placid's Whiteface Mountain. Whitney's facsimile signature is included in the lower right corner. Printed by the George Little Press of Burlington, VT in 1979. This is an original vintage poster, and not a contemporary reprint. Copyright notice at the bottom left margin reads "©1979 by Lake Placid 1980 Olympic Games Inc." Moderate foxing as pictured and a slight wave to the paper which would likely completely disappear with proper framing.

Ready to frame! This poster will be shipped in a new cardboard tube for protection.
