An incredibly rare travel poster designed by the wonderful Harry Stevens, Stevens designed many posters for London Transport from 1960-1978, many of which can be seen in the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, London. In 1963 he won the Council of Industrial Design Poster Award, and in 1955 he joined the Society of Industrial Artists and was elected Fellow ten years later.
This particular poster was designed in 1966 to advertise Scarborough as a Holiday destination, and I believe was produced in conjunction with United Buses, Its a Fantastic example of Stevens work, as it has far more detail than many of the pieces he produced for London Transport and the keep Britain tidy campaign. The poster is good condition and has been produced on light/medium weight paper which is rough to the back and smooth to the front, this is a first edition offset lithograph, the colors are bright and vibrant, the edges are a little worn, and there is a 1.5 cm tear at the top, once flat and framed I really don't think this will show.
The print is signed "Stevens 66" in the print.
