About The Poster: There have been entire volumes dedicated to the impact that exotics images, such as this one, have on consumer behaviour. At the turn of the last century, when countries began importing and exporting consumer goods, marketers needed to find a way to convey the fact that a product was special (and therefore worth more money) because it was imported. One of the easiest ways to impart that knowledge, wordlessly, was through the use of images of foreign people and places. Et voilà - Sultan Biscuits!

Poster is in excellent condition and has recently been professionally linen backed.
