István Árpád Rév (1898–1977) was a Hungarian graphic artist and puppeteer who had a one-man puppet theatre. He was the director, the dramaturge and the puppeteer of the theatre. He developed a special technique to design and to move the puppets. Apparently he was also the designer of the advertisement posters for his theatre and this is an example of such pictures.

The puppeteer who holds the the puppets is the caricature self-portrait of Rév.
