About this item

Ten 5 x 7 in. blank notecards with envelopes in a decorative folio.

Published with the London Transport Museum.

Fred Taylor (18751963), one of Britains foremost poster artists from 1908 to the 1940s, was educated at the Acadmie Julian in Paris and Goldsmiths College in London. Able to turn his hand to most subjects, he was best known for his posters of buildings and architecture. His main clients included the Underground (later London Transport) and the Empire Marketing Board, as well as railway and shipping companies. A decorative painter as well, Taylor exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy.

The images reproduced in this folio are from the London Transport Museum, one of the finest poster archives in the world. For a century, copies of every poster produced for the Underground were kept, and when the collection was transferred to the Museum in the 1980s, it contained more than 5,000 printed posters and almost 1,000 original artworks. Steadily growing since then, it now offers a uniquely comprehensive overview of a century of British graphic design.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
London Memories: Kew Gardens, 1918
London Memories: Hampstead, 1918
