Poster of the Week #12

London parks, Autumn Leaves by John Burningham, 1961

We’re treating ourselves to another poster by illustrator extraordinare John Burningham this week. This one is a fabulous collage of autumn leaves celebrating London’s Parks. I wonder which park these leaves came from? The text at the bottom says ‘Pomifer Autumnus, with  the redbreast whistling  and every common bush  afire…Who’s for a stroll?   Take your hound, greyhound, mongrel,  spaniel, cur, shough,  water-rug or demi-wolf for a last long look at the sun.   Try a different park each  week.’

Which is your favourite park for an autumn stroll and a last long look at the sun?           

PS – meet the artist himself at the museum on Tuesday 1 November http://www.ltmuseum.co.uk/whats-on/events/events-calendar/361-events-john-burningham-journeys-of-the-imagination#conversation
