Get Out Of London

lt1

London Transport Museum offers a large selection of ‘vintage’ and ‘retro’ posters. The reproduction of ‘vintage’ posters clearly show how innovative and beautiful poster design used to be, whereas the ‘retro’ efforts, as nice as they are (note the two cropped examples here), by trying to emulate the ‘vintage’ styles only serve to illustrate how little innovation and beauty there is in contemporary design. I also couldn’t help noting that many of the posters were promoting the delights on offer anywhere but in central London itself.
