Sorry it has been a bit quiet on Quad Royal these last few days, a normal service will return next week.
In the meantime, though, can I just point you at this.
It’s the second book I’ve done for Shire, not about posters this time but why and how Britain fell in love with the modern in the 1950s, and just how much the Festival of Britain actually has to answer for.
I’ll tell you some more about it in the next couple of weeks – and there might even be a competition to boot – but Amazon have just informed me it’s for sale right now, so I thought I’d tell you that. And show you a couple of the pretty pictures you will get if you do buy a copy.
So here’s a type sample from the Festival of Britain, and a lovely post-war poster by Dorrit Dekk to brighten up your Friday. Hope it works.
