JANNOT, J.B.
Le Tour du Monde en 120 images Grand Concours du Chocalat Menier. Paris: Chocolat Menier, 1956. Poster map, sheet 645 x 810mm. Original folds flattened.
A map of the world centred on the Pacific with a route around the globe, starting and finishing in Paris. Originally there would have been space underneath the map an area to fix 120 'tickets' collected from Menier chocolate products, with three that giving clues to 'Enigmas' that had to be solved. However, as the tickets had to be sent off in order to join the competition, the paper has been snipped off. The artist was J.B. Jannot, who used the pen-name Jan-Loup. He worked as an illustrator for Lisette magazine in the 1950s and early 1960s, as well as authoring his own comic stories and producing book jackets.
