A perky rabbit delivers a get-well-soon message! This dynamic image was created by John Hassall in 1899 to promote a performance of George Arliss's play Wild Rabbit. The play was staged at the Criterion Theatre in London, which has operated since 1874 and continues to operate today. Just like the theater, this charming bunny rabbit lives on!

John Hassall (1868–1948) was a renowned English illustrator born in Kent and celebrated for his iconic advertisements and poster designs. After emigrating to Manitoba, Canada, and returning to London to pursue his passion for art, he honed his craft under the tutelage of prominent artists in Antwerp and Paris. Joining David Allen & Sons in 1895, he embarked on a prolific advertising career spanning five decades, leaving an indelible mark with notable projects like the timeless "Skegness Is so Bracing" poster. His distinctive style, characterized by flat colors and bold lines, lent itself seamlessly to children's books, nursery rhymes, and fairy tales. Elected to prestigious art institutions and esteemed clubs, he made significant contributions as an educator, founding his own art school and mentoring young artists. Beyond his illustrious career, Hassall's legacy lives on through his family, including poet Christopher Hassall and printmaker Joan Hassall. His enduring creations, such as The Jolly Fisherman and the iconic Kodak Girl, resonate as timeless symbols of British advertising excellence!
