The Shell Guide - Art Work







Recently accquired: a series of vintage advertising poster for The Shell Guide (and currently for sale on Ebay).




A little worn in places these are still wonderful things that offer a real testimony to Shell's renowned patronage of the arts, particularly of the British topographical painters of the 1940s and 50s. There's a couple of John Nash images among the ten of these that I currently have.
