Certainly the best brochure ever done for the mighty SS United States … is this lovely example by Lester Beal. Lester did this brochure for the SSUS when she introduced (he also did one for the America) The SSUS brochure was filed with color renderings of public rooms and cabins … and many of these same rendering appeared in advertisements for the ship. The centerfold opens to a wonderful starboard profile one in Lester’s 50’s modern graphics . Just a lovely item in great shape with a tiny little yellowing to the paper. Don’t miss this one .. these usually sell pretty quickly.

The centerfold opens to a wonderful starboard profile of the America done in Lester’s 50’s modern graphics . Just a lovely item in great shape with a tiny little yellowing to the paper.
