18/04/07: The Prestige Visualator

Hello, and welcome to my daily art blog. You can download todays PDF by clicking on the image on the left, or here.

Here is a copy of an early Camouka advert for a 'Prestige' Visualator, I found this in a 'Festival of Britain' programme dating from 1951. Note the earlier iteration of the Camouka eye, this replaced the 'Pyro' fella that by the 1950's was deemed 'too American' to represent a British company. This advert is the first mention I've found of "Smoking Monkeys" which are of course now widely available, but at the time were very rare!
