      i am pretty certain that this poster was designed by Tom Wolsey when he was Art Director at Town magazine in the 'sixties. I have the accompanying catalogue which carries a credit to him.

    3. Thank you, Anthony! I’ve added the credit. Mike Dempsey has a post about Tom Wolsey on his Graphic Journey blog.
