Air Ships

From my vantage points on the BQE yesterday, I saw:
-Cruise ship docked at a Red Hook pier
-Small tug pushing a squarish work barge in the Gowanus Canal
-Sloop under sail, then engine, working up the East River
-Seaplane commencing decent onto the same river
-Blimp pivoting over the U.S. Open.

I had just posted that I don't have art for any of these, when I read in this morning's New York Times that Jan Sawka, the great Polish poster artist and illustrator (and many things besides), has died. So here's a poster for a student festival in Świnoujście from 1971 (7 years before Sawka emigrated to New York). There you go.
