A Map of Australia
A Map of Australia
Title: A Map of Australia
Creator: MacDonald Gill
Place of origin: United Kingdom
This impressive poster was made to advertise the work of the Empire Marketing Board (1926-1933). The Board was created by the British Colonial Office to stimulate trade between Britain and its colonies and dominions (such as Australia), and encourage British people to buy goods from within the Empire.
This particular poster was one of a five-part series titled 'Let the Empire Flourish'. It features exceptional graphic design and printing in terms of the complexity of the image and the registering of the printing, particularly evidenced in the stylised sea.
Over 800 posters were produced by the Empire Marketing Board. These posters were the British government's first peacetime propaganda campaign since the First World War. They presented the British Empire as a large extended family, where purchasing foods and goods amongst the member nations could help during a period of economic crisis.
