Guerlain Night Flight

This poster from 1954 advertises the fragrance ‘Vol de Nuit’ or ‘Night Flying’, from Guerlain. Created in 1933, its name comes from a bestselling novel by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry about the early days of aviation. The bottle’s design is true to that spirit, its appearance referencing a plane propeller in motion. The black and blue colour scheme of the poster background recalls a cloudy night’s sky. The image is dazzlingly modernist, evoking an early 20th century wonder at technological marvels.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
