John Burningham Exhibition

John Burningham Exhibition

‘Journeys of the Imagination’ is the title of John Burningham’s exhibition at The London Transport Museum which features his travel posters.

“London Transport Museum is hosting a celebration of the work of one of Britain’s most successful and best loved illustrators – John Burningham. His career was kick started with a poster commission from London Transport in 1960 although he later found fame as a celebrated children’s book author and illustrator. He has written over 60 illustrated books, for which he has received many honours including two Kate Greenaway medals.

The Museum’s celebratory events include a display of his travel posters, October family fun half term workshops, an ‘in-conversation’ evening with John Burningham and a special book signing afternoon. A new Flickr photographic competition, inspired by Burningham’s new poster artwork Children’s London, will run until 1 December 2011.”

The show is on until Thursday 1st December.
