In the past 100 years or so, the French government has put out some of the most interesting and artistic posters for the Loterie Nationale. While I wouldn't say that they are 'high art', they are not designed to be - they are supposed to appeal to what the French call Mr. & Madame Tout le Monde, what you and I would call Mr. & Mrs. Smith - uncomplicated folks who buy a lottery ticket because they don't expect to win, but they hope that maybe ... The posters are simple and sweet like this pair done by Jean Effel in the mid 1950s.
