1959 Monaco GP poster. This is the rarest of the 1950s era Monaco posters and is one of only two we have seen for sale in over a decade! The event was won by Jack Brabham in the Cooper-Climax followed by Tony Brooks in a Ferrari 246 s/n 0003 and Maurice Trintignant in another Cooper-Climax. The poster is in excellent ‘A’ condition with bright fresh colors and linen mounted. It features lovely inverse red and white race car images (presumably one is a Ferrari!) by graphic artist Charles Leuenberger. This is the largest Monaco GP poster produced at 45.5×61″ (5 feet tall!).
It is both rare and expensive. (K81U)
