'People' 1947 was designed by Barnett Freedman as a poster for Lyons. 'This print was one of a series of 16 published by the catering company J. Lyons & Co Ltd. Originally intended to decorate Lyons' tea-shops, they were soon in demand by people keen to enliven the post-war dreariness of their own homes. Lyons subsequently reprinted and sold them to the public' (V & A website). A copy of the original lithograph is for sale at Liss Llewellyn here.
