MA (Maurice) Poulton, For the Worlds Best Sport, 1936
Lithograph, Tourist Department
This poster depicts a well-equipped and pipe-smoking angler casting his line in a typical New Zealand river. This image was ideal for reproduction by the lithographic process. The angler’s arms and legs create opposing diagonals, adding to the sense of drama and concentrated effort, while his white shirt contrasts with the dark greens of the river and bush beyond.
