Mariehamn by Erik Bruun
Erik Bruun (born 1926) is a merry rascal whom everyone gets along with. He is the grand old man of poster art in Finland and the question is if anyone else has done more than he has to attract travelers to Finland. In Bruun’s posters one can always sense his typical tongue in cheek attitude, like in this interpretation of Mariehamn, the capital of the Åland islands.
This poster was actually never published, instead we got the original sketch from Erik Bruun himself.
