Every few months, London Transport Museum installs a new series of 20 original posters from our collection on the first floor of the Museum. These poster parades are themed – sometimes by the season or a special event taking place, sometimes by temporary exhibitions happening elsewhere in the Museum, or sometimes to promote a project the Museum has undertaken.
Curators and museum technicians need to be in the Museum bright and early so that the installation can be completed before the doors open at 10am. This morning, a team installed 20 posters who represent some of the strongest and most iconic designs from our collection. The display showcases and celebrates our book ‘London Transport Posters: A Century of Art and Design’, which will be coming out in paperback in the coming weeks.
