A most unusual, and complete, set of artworks for a print version of the Great Western Railway crest which was published as a supplement to the GWR staff magazine in January 1911. The group consists of the original hand drawn artwork, a coloured printed proof and samples of the pages from the magazine showing and describing the crest. This unique set was recently rediscovered in a loft in west London, together with a collection of posters, ephemera, and drawings from the former Great Western Railway Publicity Office at Paddington.
