Since Frank Pick commissioned the first graphic poster for London Underground in the early C20, copies of everything they produced have been archived. We can also thank the commercial manager for commissioning some of the most recognisable icons of London Underground’s identity – the distinctive Johnston typeface, the roundel ( the bar and circle Underground sign) and Harry Beck’s diagrammatic tube map.

The poster collection (5000 prints and nearly 1000 original artworks). was transferred to London Transport Museum in the 80s, has slowly grown and is now a uniquely comprehensive picture of a century of British graphic design.

If you love LT posters the latest exhibition is worth a visit.

Poster Girls – a century of art and design showcases over 150 posters and original artworks of female artists, illustrators and graphic designers and their stories showing how each era influenced the style. Also on display are ceramics and textiles, films and photographs. Recognisable designer names include Mabel Lucie Attwell, Enid Marx and Zandra Rhodes but it is the lesser known artists who are perhaps most fascinating. There’s not one poster dedicated to Chorleywood but we are mentioned as a destination.. By LPTS to the Countryside tempts one,, UNDERGROUND to Cockfosters – Chorley Wood. And if the posters look familiar, chances are you will have spotted some on your way to work …many are in postcard format framed and mounted on the walls of Chorleywood station tunnel Check them out on your next rail trip. They may be faded but still make a statement – go see some of the originals at this exhibition and find out about the artists.
