The poster of the Fair, with 19th-century aesthetics
A poster of the San Sebastián Fair of 1887 has inspired the one that illustrates this year’s Autumn Fair, recalling the aesthetics and classicism of the advertisements of the time, and in the line of classicism and purity with which the company has wanted to provide this end of season cycle in Madrid.
Happy week, bullfighting lovers!
