Beverley Pick (1916 – 1995/6)

Save Fuel on Bath Night (circa 1944)


Original vintage poster

30 x 20 in

Poster published for the Ministry of Information.

In this series of ten posters, “Mrs Housewife” shows us how to save fuel at home as part of the Home Front war effort. The character’s hair and dress, and the style of the bath (with a line drawn on it to remind bathers to use no more than five inches of water), are fantastically 1940s.

Beverley Pick was born in the Netherlands. He spent the Second World War designing posters for the Ministry of Information, many of them in a highly modern photographic style. He was a member of the Society of Industrial Artists, and created varied posters for commercial and industrial organisations, including the British Overseas Airways Corporation and British European Airways, after the war.

Condition: folds as issued; slight edge wear. Otherwise generally very good.
