My Goodness! The Discovery of Guinness's lost advertising campaigns

'Gilroy's posters . . . made Guinness part of the warp and woof of English life, and have never been excelled, anywhere.' David Ogilvy Guinness advertising is famous for its distinctive imagery and humour.

For thirty years the creative force behind the most iconic campaigns was John Gilroy. Mysteriously, much of his work disappeared from the archive of S. H. Benson's Advertising Agency in 1971.

Now, David Hughes has unearthed a vast portfolio of Gilroy's previously unseen and unpublished original signed canvases. This book explores the story of this extraordinary art in full colour, and tells the story of Gilroy, the man behind the advertising legacy.

As much of Gilroy's artwork has never been reproduced, this book is an exciting find for the world of advertising as well as collectors and Guinness lovers worldwide.
