Here’s a poster by Aubrey Hammond from, I would guess, the late 1930s, looking at how his style developed. He also produced a brilliant Metropolis book jacket in 1927, below.


This rather curious dust jacket (is that man throwing up?) is by noted graphic designer and photographer Jozef Gross and was produced for this 1962 volume of journalist’s reminiscences. Tudor Jenkins wrote ‘The Londoner’s Diary’ for the Evening Standard over a period of 20 years.

Ethel ‘Bip’ Pares was the designer of this very stylish 1928 booklet for the General Omnibus Company. Pares, though still largely unrecognised, was one of the UK’s great art deco illustrators, responsible for over 600 book cover designs. This one is up for auction soon.
