London Transport Museum is currently hosting a celebratory event of the transport related work of John Burningham in its new poster parade “John Burningham: Journeys of Imagination”. Along with his historic commissions created for London Transport and other travel companies, visitors can see an entirely new commission created by John Burningham.
The poster was originally commissioned by London Transport in 1968 but was never completed because of John’s work on “Around the World in Eighty Days” … until now. London Transport Museum re-commissioned the poster entitled “Children’s London” and a team of curators and technicians arrived at the Museum early this morning to ensure the poster was on display in time for the Museum opening at 10am. The poster which is currently on display in the Poster Parade can be seen until the exhibition closes on 1st December. Reproductions are also available for purchase in the Museum Shop.
We think it was definitely worth the 40 year wait and can’t wait to hear your comments.
The Museum is also running a Flickr project based on the theme of Children’s London and we would love to see your submissions. The best entries will receive admission to the Museum and a signed Burningham book. Add your entries at:
