Eliezer Weishoff designed this poster to advertise an event typical to many in Israel at the time – groups from outside the country meeting and mingling with Israelis. This one held in 1965 was for youths from cities in Israel “twinned” with cities from outside Israel. The style of the poster is reminiscent of designs brought by Abram Games to Israel when he worked with the Israel Postal Authority in the mid-50s, and is quite different from Weishoff’s later posters. A large gold key, ceremonial for a welcome, with the twin faces of two children floats on a royal blue background. Sans serif lettering in French, English and Hebrew announces the get together and its date. The poster is in fine condition with one small repaired tear on right edge and small in-painted areas on the gold of the key near top of poster.
