Lest We Regret

Posted on eBay right now, I have a 1940s educational booklet on the dangers and consequences of unsafe driving published by the Travelers Insurance Company.

It's filled with beautiful painterly graphics portraying the aftermath of car accidents, plus short fiction, cartoons, charts, statistics and more.

Here are some of my favorite images from the booklet, together with a handy explanation of "The Danger Unit".

Lest We Regret: 1, 2, 3, 4.
