Original, antique, poster: Stonehenge. See Britain First on Shell, designed by Edward McKnight Kauffer, 1931. A very atmospheric, moonlit, view of the famous World Heritage Site, executed in a contemporary ‘neo-Romantic’ style and perfectly complimented by bold, modern, lettering.

Probably the greatest poster designer working in interwar Britain, Kauffer produced several outstanding designs for Shell Oil in the 1930s. The posters were displayed on the side of Shell lorries as part of a highly regarded publicity campaign. This copy belonged to the leading post war graphic designer Abram Games (more information here). A higher resolution image is available for viewing on request
