The Empire Marketing Board


Gibraltar

I dropped in to Manchester Art Gallery yesterday because it’s been a while (and to avoid the rain). Tucked away in one of the smaller galleries were a few posters from the Empire Marketing Board dating back to the twenties and thirties, and they were rather gorgeous. Clean and well designed, they did their job very well. The one above struck me as particularly lovely. If you’re feeling generous you can buy me a print of it.

There’s a Flickr set of the Empire Marketing Board posters held by the Manchester Art GAllery.
