November 19, 2014

A little colour to start off part 3 of the collection of graphics from Modern Publicity’s annual for 1959 -60. I’m loving this tartan dog, made up of just that !

Perhaps I shouldn’t ask if anyone remembers the packaging for Jelly Babies looking like this ? (Don’t worry you’re age is safe with us)

A few strong black and white company symbols, some classical record covers and travel posters to bring this post to a retro close.

    Some of these are fab Craig! The birds about half way down are my favs, but I think the Cornwall advert is spot on! Kee ’em coming!

    That tartan dog is killing me! He’s just the best! And ‘Kidney Soup’? No thank you. I like the simple flower design on the body care bottles, I think I remember something similar to these.
