It’s nearly time to get the mistletoe out, isn’t it.

Today’s poster is from 1961, and is by Robert Scanlan, who I’ve never come across before.  Although he’s not helping himself by not signing this poster.

But the London Transport archive tells me that he not only did this rather appealing pair poster in 1949.

But also this in 1960.  Which is, as the phrase goes, iconic.

So I should have heard of him.  Silly me.  But if anyone knows more, or has an idea of what he did between 1949 and 1960, do let us know.
