This is an original 1924 halftone print of a poster, designed by Frank Brangwyn, promoting travel to Scotland via the East Coast Route of the London and North Eastern Railway. (Please note: As would be expected with an original halftone print, there is printing on the reverse of this item.)
Period Paper is pleased to offer a rare and exceptional "mini poster" collection of some of the finest examples of poster advertising art of the late 19th and early 20th century. The collection includes color prints, black and white halftone prints, and several lithographs. Although as "mini posters" they are but a fraction of the size of the original, their powerful graphic designs combined with a succinct advertising message make them highly collectible pieces for the popular culture historian, the poster art collector, or those interested in the history of poster design. Please note: these items are from 1924 and are not modern reproductions, copies, or digital prints.
This 87+ year old Item is rated Near Mint / Very Fine. No creases. No natural defects. No surface rub. No tears. No water damage.

Sir Frank William Brangwyn (1867-1956) was a talented Welsh artist, painter, muralist, engraver and illustrator. During World War I Brangwyn designed a number of war posters. In addition to his commercial poster art, he illustrated a number of books, created illustrations for many American magazines, and painted some very well-known murals. He produced many works in watercolor and hundreds of etchings.
