  • Short Summary

    New technique for poster writing using boxes and lines.

  • Description

    Walter Rose, an inventor, shows a new technique for poster writing.

    C/U of an artist drawing something on a blackboard with chalk, he draws some boxes then makes them into letters. He makes the words "Cinema Theatre". The man then draws boxes on a white piece of paper. He makes the boxes into what looks like NA2710. What does that mean?!

    Mr Rose shows the audience how this can be used as an unusual form of secret writing. C/U of a piece of paper with strange markings on it. When the boxes are filled in - the following words are spelt out: " Meet me at the cinema - Love Bill."

    Cute.
