Ib Antoni had many exciting collaborations with customers from all over the world, including Esso. Esso also known as Standard Oil, developed the Atlas Tires in the 1930s, which could be purchased at their many gas stations.
The name Esso is derived from the English pronunciation of the abbreviation for Standard Oil (S.O.). In the 1960s, Esso embarked on a massive marketing campaign – and perhaps it is from this period that Ib Antoni’s beautiful illustration originates.
As Antoni Legacy is constantly working on cleaning Ib Antoni’s beautiful original drawings, one can never know when a new illustration from Antoni’s hand will see the light of day. But when the illustration is ready for reproduction, it is added to the collection on this page, both under Products, Illustrations and the client for which the illustration is designed.
If you have a special interest in, or further knowledge of the illustration or the customer, you are more than welcome to contact us.
