Poster Journeys - London Transport Museum Event

Apparently, Abram Games was one of the 20th century's most innovative and important graphic designers. He produced a number of striking posters for the London Underground and tomorrow evening his daughter, Naomi, will be talking about his work at the
London Transport Museum.

Naomi is also a graphic designer and the event marks the launch of her new book Poster Journeys: Abram Games and London Transport and is supported by a small exhibition of original Games posters from the last 40 years.

The event runs from 6.30pm to 7.30pm & tickets can be pre booked on 020 7565 7298 and cost £8.00 adults; £6.00 concessions; £4.00 student. However, I've managed to get a couple of tickets to go along. If you'd like to come with me, send an email to themole AT goingunderground.net or DM me on Twitter. As usual first come first served.

Looks like Games had a slightly more efficient service to work with if his A Train Every 90 seconds poster, is anything to go by. I hear that King's Cross Tube station was a tad overcrowded this morning and was closed for a while. So well done if you managed to avoid that.
