Festival of Britain Guide

As an early Valentine’s Day present, Q bought me this. It’s an amazing piece of history and there are plenty available on eBay (where he got it from) and they are ridiculously reasonable in price. This one cost around £8 (p&p included). There is some stunning pieces of design work in it and the colours are glorious.
