Vic Fair is recognised as one of the most significant designers working on British Film Posters in the post-war period.
'Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush' (1967) is one of Fair's most notable poster designs, chiefly for its innovative use of silver-mirror paper for the face of the lead character. this was ground-breaking use of an additional medium at a time when cinema posters were printed solely in ink. The concept allowed the viewer to see their own image appearing on the poster in the role of the protagonist. The film was a comic take on the increasingly permissive society of the 1960s.
