Away we go!
Away we go! – the first book published by the Mainstone Press in 2006 – examines the stunning black and white illustrations produced by Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) and Edward Bawden (1903-1989) for London Transport’s Press Advertising Department in the 1920s and 30s. Their work was used to promote a variety of cultural, sporting and leisure activities, all of which could be reached by Underground or Green Line coach.
Away we go! has been designed by Brian Webb and features many of the Ravilious and Bawden press advertisements at full size. Two informative essays accompany the many illustrations, one by Oliver Green, former Head Curator of London’s Transport Museum and the other by Art Historian, Dr Alan Powers. Now out of print but available through abebooks.
