Review quote

"The history of the modern British poster from 1915 to 1970 is nothing less than a potted history of British society, culture, politics and the economy in that period. It is also, of course, a history of art and design as well as advertising." "The Observer""It's impossible not to leaf through "Modern British Posters" without experiencing a wistful longing for times past. For despite the vicissitudes of the eras represented, one thing was remarkably constant; the sheer brilliance of public art and design." "Wallpaper""This carefully curated collection of British poster design is another high-quality release from publisher Black Dog." "Monocle"
