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, places and animals.

About animal (or jungle) crackers, Wikipedia writes that " an animal cracker is a particular type of small cracker/cookie, baked in the shape of an animal, usually an animal either at a zoo or circus ... The most common is light-colored and slightly sweet ... Although animal crackers are made with a layered dough like crackers, they tend to be sweet in flavor, but still technically a cracker and not a cookie."

Poster is in excellent condition and has recently been professionally framed.
A lovely gift - either for yourself or someone you love!
