BBH has created a tactical ad to to promote this Saturday’s Guardian coverage of the Thatcher legacy

The ad is to promote cartoonist Posy Simmond’s take on Thatcher’s life in the newspaper

Illustrator Lucy Wragg also came up with a similar idea, which she posted on her blog yesterday.

The similarity has caused a minor row on Twitter but BBH tell us that their team had not seen Lucy Wragg’s image and that their ad was created some time before she posted her illustration. Great minds and all that…
