Hello Poster to Poster collectors,

Geoff Courtney has been a friend of Richard Furness and a great supporter of the unique Poster to Poster series of award-winning books – now standing at eight volumes. Geoff has written a farewell review of the eighth volume, and the series, which appeared in Heritage Railway.

‘It’s been a marathon, writes Geoff Courtney, with every step being recorded in Heritage Railway. Now, though, it’s over, and Richard and Judi Furness can relax in the glow of an astonishing series of handsome coffee-table books that has raised the profile of railway posters to a new and previously unattained level.’

‘So it’s come to an end, after 15 years, half a million words, 2100 pages, more than 3000 images of posters. 20,000 man-hours of research and writing, profiles on nearly 500 poster artists, and two book awards. A monumental achievement that has been acclaimed by BBC Antiques Roadshow expert and railway enthusiast Paul Atterbury as “one of the most ambitious and spectacular set of books in recent publishing history”’.

The full review can be viewed on our reviews page.

Hello Poster to Poster collectors,

P2P_Vol_8_cover_lo_res

I’m delighted to announce that Volume 8: Worldwide Destinations and Volume 2: Yorkshire & the North East of the definitive Poster to Poster series are now available to purchase. These volumes of British railway posters showcase some of the greatest collections of railway posters to be found anywhere in the world .

Volume 8 uses our National Collection of posters to take a journey around some wonderful continental destinations such as France, Germany and Italy, as well as Ireland and North America, which both the British and foreign 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.

Volume 2 uses our National Collection of posters to take a journey around Northumberland, Durham and Yorkshire using many images unique to this series. The result is a stunning artistic guide to both the ‘birthplace of railways’ and its railway poster heritage.  With a foreword by the BBC’s Paul Atterbury, it is a wonderful nostalgic journey.

To guarantee yourself a copy of these stunning books you can purchase Volume 2 for £35 (plus £5.90 postage) and Volume 8 for £35 (plus £5.90 postage) (£81.80 in total) using PayPal via the website at: www.postertoposter.co.uk

There is a limited print run of both so make sure you reserve your copies now.  http://postertoposter.co.uk/series/Please note that other volumes in the series are also available.

Volume 8 – steady progress!

Posted by: Judi – Date: Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Volume 8 is progressing nicely!  Now over 75% complete it will eventually contain around 400 poster images from worldwide destinations.  Two sample pages are shown below, one from the France/Germany chapter, and one from the worldwide travel chapter.   Half the posters are of UK origin, advertising overseas destinations and half are foreign posters advertising their home markets.  This enables UK and overseas posters to be compared.

VOLUMES 3 & 6 – GET THEM WHILE YOU CAN !!!!!!!!

Posted by: Judi – Date: Monday, March 30, 2015

The above two volumes of books are now out of print, HOWEVER we do have some limited editions of these two fine volumes available as the first 100 books off the press were individually numbered.  Please contact us direct if you are interested.  Given the ongoing popularity of Volume 2 (Yorkshire) and the fact that this is selling at 4 or 5 times the cover price on other internet sites, these two new books that have just gone out of print will soon be attracting similar prices.
