This poster was designed by Charles Buchel (1872-1950) to advertise the original production of J.M. Barries childrens play Peter Pan which opened at Londons Duke of Yorks Theatre on 27th December 1904. Barrie was very unsure of the reaction it would provoke, and when he read an early draft to the actor-manager Herbert Beerbohm Tree the previous April, Tree decided Barrie had gone mad since it was so unlike any play ever written before and called for complicated technical flying effects.
The Whisker Dam is a new product to protect a moustache from getting wet while drinking. The packaging design has a purposely distressed look and a vintage logo that was inspired by an original patent from 1872. // This looks useful.
