Advert art by Reginald Mount.

”Having worked as a designer for various advertising agencies in the 1930s, Mount joined the Ministry of Information at the outbreak of the Second World War. During the war years he worked with designer Eileen Evans, producing many posters for campaigns varying from security and salvage to road safety and the renowned anti-VD campaign of 1943-44.

The Mount/Evans studio in the 1950s and 60s, became closely associated with the post-war Central Office of Information, producing characteristically neat and precise designs for a wide variety of government agencies. Mount also designed the poster for the British comedy film The Ladykillers (1955) starring Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers.

The poster is in very good unfolded (rolled) condition with slight tattering down the right edge
