A playful design for BEA (note the policeman) by Australian John Bainbridge. The design gives centre stage to London’s famous landmark Big Ben, towering over even the seagulls. However this is a distraction as far above the pinnacle of the clock tower, in the apex of the image is a silhouette of a BEA aircraft, busy carrying more passengers to their next destination.
Bainbridge produced several designs for BEA and also London Transport. He developed a distinctive, humorous and modernist style.
The poster has been cleaned and laid on Japan paper. One small area has been restored and is clearly visible along the lower right vertical edge. The colours retain their depth and colour, this is a lovely poster.
