This poster designed by Geo Ham features the American daredevil Clem Sohn promoting the 1937 Paris Air Meet at Vincennes field. In it we see Sohn skydiving in his winged suit made of zephyr cloth wearing his large goggles which gave rise to his nickname "The Batman". Planes and parachutes can be seen in the background. The popular show was organized by "Air Publicity" and sponsored by the newspaper "Paris-Soir". A crowd of 100,000 were on hand to watch the aerial feats.

This is the small version of the poster with complete event information. A rare find.
