A masterful design promoting Canterbury on the Southern Railway by Captain Charles Shepherd. ‘Shep’, as the artist was better known, was Head of Art at the Baynard Press and widely regarded as one of the best poster designers working in Britain at the time. This rare poster is unusually printed without a border to give an imposing sense of the cathedral’s massive size.
