In 1960-1963 there was a Department of Agriculture designer who very much liked thin black lines and red and black—witness these two op-art gems (English and French versions) as well as the stark Bannissons la Mammite! booklet. Additionally, this kind of economic-modernism-with-graphic-script also appears in the Our Food Costs booklet. I look forward to finding more work by this uncredited civil servant.
