The VISIT BETHLEHEM poster was specially commissioned by Laila Tours and Travel from English artist Mr Ian Knowles, a good friend of Laila Tours who regularly works out in the Holy Land, mainly as an iconographer voluntarily supporting our local churches. See more of his work on his website here: www.eliasicons.co.uk
VISIT BETHLEHEM was inspired by the famous VISIT PALESTINE travel poster, as well as many other travel posters of the 1930s and 40s. The original poster was created entirely by hand using no digital animation, and will be used both as a promotional tool for Laila Tours and Travel. The unveiling of VISIT BETHLEHEM was held on November 7th, 2011 at a reception for His Grace, Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster in Bethlehem.
This VISIT BETHLEHEM poster will be the first of an annual series of posters, released in the autumn of each year. So far the response from this first poster has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are hoping to offer a range of poster sizes and other printed materials with VISIT BETHLEHEM.
