1950s Pop Up Wonders






I have something of a weakness for the design of the 1940s and 50s so imagine my delight when I pulled this from a box of otherwise disappointing books bought today at auction. A pop-up book called How We Travel. How brilliant is the optimisim of including a page on rocket ships?
Given the compass design on the back cover I was wondering if this book had some affiliation with the Festival of Britain which I think used a very similar design. And whilst I was poking around the Internet for some kind of answer I came across this amazing design for a poster in the London Transport Museum, what a shame though, that they can't provide a bigger image.
