In a unique arrangement with the National Railway Museum in York, the Poster to Poster series is an eight-volume definitive collection of British railway posters which showcases some of the greatest collections of railway posters to be found anywhere in the world. Each volume is a mixture of travel documentary, geographical and historical study, graphic artists’ reference and poster database – all interlinked using the central theme of railway posters. This eighth volume uses our National Collection to take a journey around some wonderful continental destinations such as France and Italy, as well as North America, which both the British and overseas railway companies advertised, before examining general British poster policy and the services our railways offered, covering hotels, ferry, air and freight services and holiday guides. The result is a stunning artistic guide to both continental and North American destinations and railway poster heritage.
