About The Poster: Created in 1933, the French National Lottery became widely popular after the media coverage of  barber Paul Bonhoure's win of five million francs in the first draw. In a very enlightening article "Loterie nationale : Mythes et symboles" written in 1969, the influencial French journalist and author of many books on consumerism, education and advertising proposes an in-depth analysis of posters comissioned by the French lottery. The lottery hired some of France's best designers, developing a corpus of some of the most effective posters in history. The result: beauties that have survived the test of the time!
