An original Australian travel poster, design by the noted English artist Eileen Mayo and published by the Australian National Travel Association (ANTA), c. 1955. The striking image depicts a kangaroo with joey in its pouch against a dramatic landscape. The ANTA was established in 1929 to attract overseas visitors to Australia by displaying artist-designed posters in its London, San Francisco and Bombay offices. This poster was found in India (presumably from the Bombay office) and has corner holes and signs of wear from where it was previously displayed. An uncommon poster.
