A lovely Christmas cover from the December 1954 BEANO to drool over this time 'round, folks. Although printing technology has advanced in leaps and bounds in modern times, there's something about that old 'Ben Day' dots colouring technique which adds to the atmosphere in a way which modern colouring simply can't match - despite its superior reproduction. Look at that snow-clad logo - absolutely great, isn't it?
