Modern Publicity 1955-56 Part 3

This is the third post taken from the annual Modern Publicity publication. These are from the 1955-56 collection. I’ve coloured some of the black and white images to lift them a little. Many depict figures or animals or sometimes both.

Wonderful use and consideration for shape here.

Happy animals to inspire you to buy chocolate or visit Africa : )

These wolves are amazing and the cat with the roller coaster tail is very close to home for me.

Adverts to make you smile for certain, although not sure about the smoking horse !

I was memory jogged (above) by the series of Posters that Tom Eckersley designed for the Post Office to instruct people to package fragile items properly when sending them through the post. Judging by the number of variations, they had a lot of breakages back then ! More about this on the fab Quad Royal site.
