Norblin "was well-known for his poster designs for the Polish tourist industry. His poster work is distinguished by its unconstrained expression of subject matter, fine hand and intense color. It depicted specific Polish regions, towns and historical buildings for the Ministry of Transportation" (Polish Poster p. 87). Here, we see a view of the old buildings and spires of Warsaw seen from the Vistula river. Gebrauchsgraphik April 1, 1936, p. 43.
