[Rex Whistler]


A promotional brochure for Guinness, filled with amusing parodies of traditional songs, all illustrated with charming illustrations by Rex Whistler. Songs include 'The Age of Invention (to the tune of "She does the Fandango all over the place")' and 'Won't you tell me How? (to the tune of "Won't you tell me Why?")'. Whistler's comic illustrations of society types complement the Guinness-themed text perfectly. Some were enlarged by the firm for separate illustrations.
