  6. These are amazing, why have I not seen these before?! I agree with Les Toil - imagine these framed and displayed; they'd look stunning. Emma

  7. I've seen some of these before, especially the Vegas pic , but didn't know it was by David Klein. Thanks for solving the mystery Leif.Travel posters seemed to be the ideal niche for illustrators with a leaning towards graphics and wild color schemes!
