A day on the riverJohn Burningham
Before finding international fame as a children’s author and illustrator, John Burningham designed nine posters for London Transport. This poster advertises day trips to the River Thames and features early versions of some of the characters that were to reappear in Burningham’s illustrated books. This copy has a contemporary overprint stating that the poster is a 'reproduction'. This was done to enable LT to sell surplus copies via their shop on the Marylebone Road. The poster is, however, an original, from the initial print run.
