Reilly Archives
A pictorial catalogue of how the P-O-P industry developed

A brand-new archive which tracks the journey of the P-O-P industry from the 1950’s through to the 1990’s.

The archives were instigated by - and named after - one of POPAI's founder members, Carl Reilly, who started his P-O-P career as an apprentice in 1951 at J.E, Slater Graphic & Display Design, working his entire career designing award-winning P-O-P.
