Sapphire Elephant, 'Fly The Sapphire Service To Air Ceylon', 1955
Up in Kandy the celebrations are starting. Children laughing, street vendors shouting, drums beating. This quirky poster by Dutch artist Mart Kempers of the Kandy Perahera is an Air Ceylon design Classic. We are grateful to the Mary Evans Picture Library in the United Kingdom for granting us a licence to print.
These Open Edition Super A1 / Architect D-Sized unframed Posters measure 61 x 91.4cm / 24” x 35.8” inclusive of a 2cm / 0.8” white protective border. Specialist printed on minimum 150 GSM Satin Matt Art Paper produced from pulp from the fastest replenishing trees since 2011, we emboss these posters with our copyright seal before shipping them worldwide in biodegradable yet highly dent resistant tubes.

The Stick No Bills® Open Edition product range consists of open-ended prints of our images ranging in size from miniature postcards to 61 x 91cm i.e. ‘Super A1’-sized posters.
While our Open Edition prints are unlimited in number, we still hold ensuring the consistency of their high quality and the sustainability of their production as of the utmost importance. No Stick No Bills® image goes on sale in printed form as either a limited or open edition print without our Creative Director first personally overseeing the proofing process with his exacting eye until perfection is achieved.
