    Ha ha, he’s a bit like the school prefect – always telling people what to do! I found the poster telling people to shine a torch on their hand when they want to stop a bus in a blackout, during the war, immensely touching. It really brings home what the blackout must have been like.

      Yes indeed for those of us fortunate enough not to have to live through those tough times, it does give a feel for what it was like.

    Such a variety of styles – and yet all of them evoke the times they were made in. I’m also a huge fan of the blackout series – trying to make important posters that people will notice and still trying to make them cheery, yet the seriousness of the times shines through the work too. Thanks for sharing.
