High WireJan Brychta
An original vintage poster designed by the Czech illustrator Jan Brychta for the Big ‘O’ poster company in 1971. Brychta was a successful poster artist, book illustrator, caricaturist and pioneer of television graphics. He moved to London in 1968 and is perhaps best remembered in the UK for his work with the BBC children’s programme Jackanory. He also illustrated the popular children’s book Mr Cat in Business (1972). This poster is from a set of anthropomorphised ‘circus cats’ he produced for the anarchic Big ‘O’ poster company, which retailed psychedelic and pop culture posters during the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s. A rare poster in outstanding condition. A higher resolution image is available for viewing on request.
