NASON, Ben (1915-?). Boston / Join the Jubilee. [1950]. Offset lithograph poster. 21 7/16 x 14 ¼”. Linen backed. Small expertly restored loss at lower right corner; touched-up losses and repaired tears. B+. A rare poster; no copies have been traced at auction or institutionally. This poster advertises the 1950 Boston Jubilee, a five-day festival sponsored by the Boston Chamber of Commerce aimed at “boosting” the city with pageantry, store sales, tours, concerts, and related events.
