The most prolific of LNER’s contracted pre-war “golden age” graphic designers, Fred Taylor specialised in architectural settings, here showing King’s College Cambridge. The contrast between the detail of the central building and the flat blocks of colour in the fore or background combine to create a startling, almost photographic effect. The design is stunning. Taylor’s posters quite rightly remain some of the most sought after by collectors.
This poster has spent considerable time folded. The central horizontal fold has given way on the left side and has been stabilised on the reverse with light archival tape. Other areas of weakness along the folds have been similarly treated. The overall condition is good with no paper loss, pin holes, nicks or other abrasions.
