Nobody can help noticing advertisements, whatever they say to the

contrary, and it should be a matter of public concern that our advertisements should be adornments rather than eyesores. Posters and Publicity, by Mr. John Harrison (The Studio, 7s. 6d.), gives a very good- selection of the most artistic, effective, and intelligent advertisements in Europe and America. Mr. -Harrison—and we think rightly—has much faith in the future of this modern art, praising particularly the brilliant series of posters which have been produced by our railways. We have often felt grateful to Mr. Donald Maxwell for these delightful station posters.
