The Art of the Poster
Here's a novelty worth noting during recession: a free art exhibition for Greater London's resident silver surfers and their grandcherubs. It opened recently at the London Transport Museum The Art of the Poster - a Century of Design and continues until 31 March 2009. Admission to the museum is £10.00 for adults, £8.00 for OAPs or £6.50 for students. However, entry is FREE for Freedom Pass holders and under 16s. Nice one, TFL. I've illustrated this post with the cover of the show's book - slightly different title - rather than with the exhibition poster, in case the poster's Picasso-style design puts you off. London Transport poster artists were generally far superior to that old fraud.
