      Annand not only designed travel posters, but he was also the principle designer of Australia's exhibition at the 1939 New York World's Fair. "The use of photography in these pavilions was paralleled in the poster production of the late 1930s - especially in the posters designed by Sellheim and Annand, who worked with the pre-eminent Sydney photographers Russell Roberts and Max Dupain. Sellheim and Annand were exceptional in their use of the techniques of photographic collage as well as their insistence on an Australian look. In abandoning the soft pictorial views, they made a decisive break with English models" (Poster Art in Australia p. 21).
