Design At London Colour Ltd Miscellaneous Trade Cards Advert Cards (Paintings and Artwork) 2018 Advert Cards (Paintings and Artwork) 2018 EL4 - These advert cards are all very different, in fact the only thing they have in common is that they were produced by Ian Shoesmith at Design At London Colour and presumably demonstrate the range of illustration and printing types offered by this firm. The first card is reminiscent of a Victorian print of a lady and flowers, whilst the next, ‘The Eye’ looks very modern. Not sure what to make of “Crucifix” which is clearly telling a story, but not sure what that is! The last card, titled “Ancient Yew”, is in black and white and this gnarly tree is given a hint of mystery with a small wooden door. Sadly there is no information on the backs other than an advert for the company. These cards are size 105 x 74mm

Faulkner Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Optical Illusions 1935 (CCS reprint 2000) Optical Illusions 1935 (CCS reprint 2000) 25 - This is a fascinating series originally produced in 1935 and reprinted in 2000 pictures all sorts of illusions which indicate how easily our eyes are fooled. Take the simple picture on card no. 2 which show two different lines with inverted arrows and normal arrow tips on the ends. Looking at these pictures the line with the arrows looks shorter than the inverted arrows and yet, as the card explains, if measured you will see that they are in fact exactly the same length. A similar trick is played with a series of posts in a corridor which are the same height but appear to differ due to the perspective of the hall. The backs give information on why these illusions work. Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) 50 - Road safety was a real problem in 1934 when these were originally issued and the colourful cards illustrate some of the dangers. Actually aside from issues with tramlines and using hand signals as there were no indicators most these safety instructions are still relevant today, but it is the charming vintage pictures which are the real attraction. The warnings include not overtaking on bends, not squeezing through traffic if you are a motor-cyclist, how to pass animals, how to correct a skid and not to throw anything from a moving car as well as how to cross safely. There is plenty of further information on the card backs. Cards size 68 x 36mm.
