Last year, RoSPA – the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents – did what most of us probably will only ever dream of, and discovered a whole cache of their old health and safety posters and artwork just sitting in a warehouse. I wrote about it at the time when they first displayed the finds.
Now Janice Cave, who is in charge of their archive, has got in contact and would like you lot to help. Now that they are a bit further down the line with cataloguing their finds, RoSPA would like your help. They now have a huge list of artists who have done work for RoSPA and about whom they know precisely nothing. But I am sure that collectively we will be able to add to the sum total of human knowledge here.
So here’s the list. If anyone can give me any links, I will add these to the list as we go on (I will confess, I haven’t thrown many of these at Google yet). Or if you have any other information, please just pop it in the comments below.

Oh, and the two posters above are by Karo and Leonard Cusden respectively. This one, meanwhile, is by Leonard Woy (any excuse).
I am pleased to say that we now own a copy of this poster, something which pleases me greatly. I shall, of course, not be taking any risks.
