Three beautifully designed late twentieth-century leaflets from the British Humanist Association

Here are three beautifully designed late twentieth-century leaflets from the British Humanist Association archives advertising humanist ceremonies for birth, partnerships and death.

The desire to offer a true alternative to religion led the British Humanist Association, and other humanist bodies, to support and develop these non-religious ceremonies.

The current popularity of such ceremonies demonstrates one of the many effects the Ethical Movement (which started in the nineteenth century) had on British culture as well as being indicative of a wider secularisation of society.
