After the founding of the State of Israel in 1948, the country sought to attract visitors from around the globe . In the inviting image by the great British graphic designer, Abram Games (1914 -1996) we view Israel as a land of sun and smiles. It utilizes the graphic style that Games was recognized for during his 6 decade career.

Abram Games was one of the twentieth century's great graphic designers. His work is now a fascinating record of social history. For over 60 years he produced some of Britain's most memorable images including the ‘Blonde Bombshell' ATS poster of 1941. His clients included the United Nations, London Transport, British Airways, Shell, the Financial Times and Guinness. He designed stamps for Britain, Jersey and Israel, book jackets for Penguin books and emblems for the Festival of Britain and the Queen's Award for Industry. His influence even reached the infant television service in 1953 when he created the first animated BBC on-screen ident. In the Second World War he was appointed 'Official War Poster Artist' and designed 100 posters. Born into a Jewish family, Games like many other poster designers contributed their skills to help promote the new State of Israel.
