Mr. Lang never gave me any idea for the poster; he never saw it until it was finished. I don’t believe he and I have ever talked,” said Skolnick.

The CND symbol. One of the most widely known symbols in the world, in Britain it is recognised as standing for nuclear disarmament – and in particular as the logo of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND).

The CND symbol

In the United States and much of the rest of the world it is known more broadly as the peace symbol. It was designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtom, a professional designer and artist and a graduate of the Royal College of Arts. He showed his preliminary sketches to a small group of people in the Peace News office in North London and to the Direct Action Committee Against Nuclear War, one of several smaller organisations that came together to set up CND.

Ladybird are best known for their ‘Key Words Reading Scheme,’ which introduced young children to the world of siblings Jane and Peter and their dog, Pat.

‘Key Words’ was launched in 1964 and ran to 36 books. Kitchener: The most famous pointing finger. Image copyright Other A recruitment poster of the stern-eyed Lord Kitchener has become a defining image of World War One.

Kitchener: The most famous pointing finger

A clever illustrator's psychological trickery has spawned a thousand imitations, writes Adam Eley. It is perhaps history's most famous pointing finger. The image of British war minister Lord Kitchener's index finger unsettlingly aimed at the viewer remains immediately recognisable 100 years after its design. Pins from on Pinterest.
