Happy New Year!

Nice graphics on this old New Year flyer found in a junk shop recently. Clever use of an economical two-colour process and the hand-rendered type is great. I also love the way somebody’s written the date a second time, like they only read their own writing.

Not sure who’s the more odious character though, the guy for throwing over 1965 in an instant or 1966 for being so easily bought. Just wait ‘til he notices how her hand sometimes grows an extra digit, it’ll be out-with-the-old-and-in-with-new come 1967.

Lovely, what a cool find. The typography is definitely worth ripping off in some way!
