Edward McKnight Kauffer was undoubtedly one of the most prolific and influential graphic designers of the 20th. At the outbreak of the First World War, Kauffer moved from Paris to London where he gained his first commissions from the Underground. During the next 25 years Kauffer also worked for Shell, the Great Western Railway, the Empire Marketing Board and the Post Office. His designs ranged from book jackets and illustrations to stage sets and textiles, but it is for his London Transport posters that he will always be remembered.
