100 Years of Posters

Back in 1908, the London Underground commissioned it’s first poster art.  Now 100 years later, the London Transport Museum has an exhibition titled “the art of the poster.”  It looks to be a pretty exciting look back at poster art.  It runs until 31 March 2009.  

I am a huge fan of poster art and can never seem to get enough.  To me it really brings everything together for me.  It’s art for the everyday citizen and tourist of London, but also gives information.  Wonderful form and function.  I’ll be attempting to get over to London before this exhibition closes, Lord willing.
