I found these while looking for something else altogether on the LT museum poster site. And I’ve never seen them before.
They’re a rather surprising departure by Eckersley-Lombers and date from 1938.
The design reminds me more of book covers of the period than posters. But it’s great.
While we’re in the domain of London Transport design, there’s also this post-war Unger.
It came up on eBay, and so Mr Crownfolio and I thought we’d invest some of our selling proceeds in it. But then who could resist a poster which, as well as showing a fabulous and only marginally relevant fish, also manages to rhyme Dorking and torking? Not us, that’s for sure.
Next time, unbelievable quantities of posters for sale on eBay and elsewhere. So many in fact that I don’t have enough time to fit them into a post today. See you then.
