Product Description
John Farleigh: London's Country Boxed Notecards
London-born illustrator, wood engraver, and lithographer John Farleigh (also known as Frederick William Charles Farleigh) left school at fourteen to apprentice at the Artists’ Illustrators Agency. He then studied, and later taught, at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London. He received widespread acclaim for his book illustrations commissioned by George Bernard Shaw (The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search for God) and D. H. Lawrence (The Man Who Died). Throughout his career, Farleigh (1900–1965) exhibited his work extensively, and he was a founding member and a longtime chairman of the Crafts Centre of Great Britain. He may be best known, however, for the posters he designed for London Transport; the four presented here were part of a series called London’s Country, published to promote the company’s Green Line service to local scenic attractions.

The images reproduced in this notecard collection are from the London Transport Museum, one of the finest poster archives in the world. For a century, copies of every poster produced for the Underground were kept, and when the collection was transferred to the Museum in the 1980s, it contained more than 5,000 printed posters and almost 1,000 original artworks. Steadily growing since then, it now offers a uniquely comprehensive overview of a century of British graphic design.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Kent, 1947
The Chilterns, 1947
Epping Forest, 1947
Hertfordshire, 1947
