Shell Art Collection at the National Motor Museum Trust

The Shell Advertising Art Collection was relocated to the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in 1993.  It contains posters, postcards, Shell guides, press advertising, and valentine cards (both those sent by Shell to their customers from 1938 to the 1970s and the historic collection they acquired in 1964 from The Valentine Shop in the Strand).

Selections of each category are online through the Highlights and Explore pages of the National Motor Museum website.. The collection contains work by some of the most notable designers of the 20th century, such as McKnight Kauffer, Edward Bawden, and Rex Whistler.
