A rare, large format, advertising poster for the Times newspaper designed by Patrick Tilley, and published in 1960. Tilley is probably best remembered today as a successful science fiction author and screenwriter, having given up graphic design in the late 1960s. But before then he designed several notable poster campaigns, especially for the Times and Sunday Times. This example features an archaeologist uncovering a priceless vase, while using a copy of the Times newspaper as an improvised sunshade. A higher resolution image is available for viewing on request.
