Burningham at 75

Two exhibitions have opened in London to celebrate the 75th birthday of Scottish artist John Burningham, famous for his children's books and illustrations. He began his career with a commission to design 10 posters for London Transport. Journeys of the Imagination: The travel posters of artist and illustrator John Burningham runs at the London Transport Museum until 1 December. Shown is his recent poster Children's London, which completes the series. There is a book signing on Saturday 1 November, between 2pm and 4pm, and also a competition (title link). Yesterday The Fleming Collection, which specializes in Scottish art, opened John Burningham: An Illustrated Journey, which runs until 22 December. This retrospective shows illustrations, working drawings and previously unseen archive material, including a model for Ian Fleming's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (CLICK).
