This week's crush

Currently quite taken by these posters designed by Leonard Mitchell ...

Wondering if these might also be his handiwork ...

Also rather fetched by the fact that Mitchell's middle name was Cornwall. Very euphonious.

All images from the Drawings, Paintings and Prints Collection, Alexander Turnbull Library, and accessible on the Timeframes website.
