This poster was printed in 1985 by the estate of the artist Adolphe Mouron Cassandre. It pays homage to his original design printed in 1929. The poster promoted the rapid rail service of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway in the U.K. Cassandre's classic image and rich colors still resonate with the viewer over 80 years after its creation.
Adolphe Jean Marie Mouron (1901-1968), commonly known as AM Cassandre, is one of the most influential poster artists of the mid-twentieth century. His work mixes elements of art deco, cubism and surrealism. Cassandre established his own advertising agency, Alliance Graphique. Along with his innovative art style, Cassandre also developed several typefaces for use in his advertising. In 1936, his posters were exhibited by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His images of speeding trains, ocean liners, and festive cocktails defined our vision of the period between the wars. His influence is still being felt today in current graphic designs.
