1 poster : col. ill. ; 72 x 57 cm. 
Summary

Travel poster of artwork depicting a man holding a suitcase on a boomerang flying in the sky towards a map of Australia on the globe. A small Star Alliance five pointed star logo and tagline appears in the upper right corner, and the slanted stylised U logo (the 'tulip' designed by Saul Bass in 1973) and United in Helvetrica block capitals (with the customised slant T designed by Pentagram in 1997) appears across the bottom. The decoration on the boomerang and the ochre border of a slightly squiggly line surrounded by dots suggest Aboriginal art.

Biography/History
