1924 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster Reproduction

Reproduction of the original Le Mans 24 Hours of Le Mans Race Poster.

This reproduction of the official 1924 poster is officially endorsed by the A.C.O.

23 x 35 inches
58 x 89 cm

This poster is after a color illustration by an unknown artist while the overall design was in the hands of the Ch. Hirvyl publishing house of Angers.

As the 1923 race did not attract a huge crowd, the 1924 poster stressed the party aspect and downplayed the race itself.

The night was again the main feature as it singled out the Le Mans event from the other French races.

There was some discreet advertising (Magondeaux eclairera le circuit) and the elitist choice was clearly stated with its lavish party and the mention "The elite of the car industry will take part in it.".

This poster will be shipped, rolled, in a sturdy tube.

1959 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster REPRODUCTION

1959 Le Mans Race Poster REPRODUCTION.

June 20 & 21, 1959.

It measures approximately:
16 x 22 inches
40 x 56 cm

The 1959 Le Mans poster is part of the so-called "Major Illustrators" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1954 - 1963 and in which the cream of the crop of French motorsport illustrators such as Geo Ham, Jeudon and Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.

The design of the 1959 poster was by Michel Beligond and was his second work for the Le Mans 24 hours race.

Beligond was preceded by Geo Ham and Jeudon and the switch to this relatively new artist immediately gave a more realistic rendering of the race.

The drivers running towards their cars in a typical Le Mans start with the international flags flying over the pit box building. With a little good will, one can see a Ferrari and a Jaguar ready to be taken to the tarmac by their sprinting drivers.

The race was won by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby in their Aston Martin DBR1/300 (S/N 2) with a total of 323 laps to their name.
