This is an aircraft art print.
Soaring over what is most likely the French Alps on a beautiful day, this colorful Koike portrayal of a 1930s Air France 22-passenger, three-engined airliner takes the viewer back to the calm before war broke out in Europe. Only 30 D.338s were built, but several of them survived the war and continued to see domestic French service for a short time. As usual, Koike's skillful use of color, light and shadow in the aircraft and in the various greens of the background create a scene that not only documents its subject beautifully, but is attractive as a landscape as well.
This print is reproduced on heavy art board just like the original, and sized identical to the original, measuring 400mm x 315mm (15.75 x 12.4 inches). It's offset printed, and the color reproduction has been approved by Koike himself. The art board measures 625mm x 453mm (24.6 x 17.83), giving you the freedom to have it framed as you would like. Each print is packed in a special sleeve inside a sturdy cardboard shipping box designed especially to prevent bending during international shipping (NOTE: These prints cannot be combined with other items for shipping, except for additional art prints; they will be shipped separately in their special packaging, even if ordered together with other items).
