Post Office Printing 1956

The Penrose Annual of 1956 contains a significant article discussing the role printing and graphic design play (other than for stamps) in promoting the services of the British Postal system. The public relations department of the Post Office commissioned a number of talented designers including Eckersley, Lewitt-Him, Henrion, Reiss and many more the results of which “have been some bright and pleasant decorations for dull monochromatic post offices as dreary as all but the most modern post offices themselves”.

Here is a selection of images from the article, written by Misha Black O.B.E.
