POSTER FOR LONDON UNDERGROUND

Nine colour wood engravings, each from 3 blocks, were collaged together for the poster.

London's New Architecture by Bus and Tube was
designed for London Transport in 1996, using colour wood engraving. Three acetal resin blocks were engraved and printed together for the nine prints depicting details of recent London buildings. The work took 18 months.

Artwork for the poster is a collage of the nine prints and is in the London Transport Museum Collection.

Transport for London gave Edwina permission to hand print a small edition of colour engraving for each building. A few of the 75 sets and some single prints are still available.

The set of nine prints are in the Prints and Drawings Collection at the Museum of London and also in the print collection at the Ashmolean Museum Oxford.

The poster artwork was exhibited in the 2008 London Transport Museum exhibition London Transport Posters: a Century of Art and Design in 2008. An overview of the 1990's poster design for London Transport is here...
