    This weekend at The Vintage Furniture Flea, I stumbled on the most wonderful print, I just had to get. It was a 1970s London Transport poster by British illustrator, Harry Stevens. His style is so very reminiscent of the works of UPA.

    There isn’t a lot of information on Stevens online, but on the London Transport Museum website I managed to find a brief history of his Career:

    “With no formal art training, Harry Stevens started his design career in the exhibitions and display trade. He went on to become a prolific freelance commercial artist, specialising in poster design. He worked for a wide variety of clients and agencies and in 1963 won the Council of Industrial Design Poster Award.”
