A Bern-Lotschberg-Simplon Ae6/8 electric motor pulls a passenger train out of the Lotschberg Tunnel under the Swiss Alps. The tunnel, completed in 1912 allowed swift passage between Berne, the capital of Switzerland and Milan, Italy by joining up with the already completed Simplon Tunnel. This poster by Plinio Columbi who was well known for his posters of Swiss Alpine scenery.

There are two sporting events on the Louis Vuitton calendar, the annual Parc de Bagatelle car show in Paris and the America’s Cup races held around the world. Razzia’s yachting posters are extraordinary in their simple but striking designs. This is the small size poster for the 2003 Challenge Series which was won by the Swiss boat Alinghi, which went on to defeat America’s Cup holder New Zealand in the finals.
