This book contains almost fifty posters, over forty of them with perforations so they can be removed from the book and displayed.
'Life is Better on the Land', Don't Ask a Man to Drink and Drive', Be Really Cool, Man, Save',' Clunk Click Every Trip' - With these kinds of slogan combined with eye-catching graphics the British government in the postwar era sought to influence everything from the jobs people did to what they ate and drank, how they saved their money and behaved on the road. Over forty of these posters, produced in the period c.1945-75, have been selected from an extensive collection in The National Archives and are publshed here in a handy detachable format.
