trooping the colour

Posters from the 1920s and 30s–it’s hard to get enough of them. The mother of Chicago museums (the Art Institute of Chicago) currently has an exhibit titled “Everyone’s Art Gallery: Posters of the London Underground.” Good stuff and plenty to admire.

This 1939 lithograph by Charles Mozley is a patriotic announcement.

Other posters feature pastoral destinations.

And this one promises summer sales by the umbrella full. Happy summer.
