Montreal was determined to make Expo 67 a success and the copyright date of this poster, 1963, attests to the fervor of the preparations in hand. Vivid sixties greens predominate with some blue. Three other variations are known in this series, a scarlet/pumpkin/orange, a pink/magenta and a blue/purple. And Montreal Expo 67 was in fact a huge success. One of the most architecturally adventurous of all the great world’s fairs.
|The poster design was produced by the design firm Marsil Caron Barkes & Associates Ltd., Montreal. William Wright was the credited designer.|
