We love graphic design – and collect vintage examples from the mid twentieth century in particular.
…posters, menus, books and magazines are all potential sources.
We’ve just acquired this fabulous vintage poster by renowned graphic artist, Leonard Cusden. It dates from the 1950s and was commissioned by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. It warns of the dangers of working with compressed air. He’s also famous for his distinctive 1930s railway posters.
It’s very striking in terms of design & colours – we love the ghoulish spectre!
Quite a few of his health & safety posters have now been re-produced by RoSPA. We were very chuffed with this find, especially as it’s an original copy from the period.
