A beautiful example of Lucien Boucher’s famous and iconic pictorial world map showing the global commercial airline routes of Air France.  The map is adorned with an array of wonderful iconography throughout depicting a world without borders and open to travel and exploration.
Boucher’s pictorial map, which used a  chromolithographic printing technique, is part of a series of world maps, first published in 1934, and printed by Perceval of Paris for Air France.
This particular design, drawn with extended air routes, was initially published in 1952.  
All of Lucien Boucher’s maps are sought after for their beauty and design highlighting the burgeoning interest and demand for commercial aviation as well as air travel in general.
