Bright and clean.

Originally designed and used as a lower cover for the Christmas issue of ‘Socialist Worker’ in 1980, this parody of the original Gone With the Wind poster became probably the most successful of all SWP productions.

This is the two colour version, and slightly smaller than that found in the NPG, though pretty much the same size as the one in the V&A. This cataloguer vaguely remembers reading somewhere that the two colour version came after the single colour version, but can no longer remember (or indeed confirm) that this is the case.

Date is from the V&A
