Aaron Fine Travel Posters

Thanks for posting this, Mike. I found some additional info about Aaron Fine: it seems he's better known for his posters for Pan American airlines (some of these can be found on Tumblr and/or Pinterest), that he was a friend of Andy Warhol, and that he died of cancer in 1962.

Thanks, Rodrigo! Here are some of his posters:

Just stunning work!
