Vintage London Transport greetings cards

Londontransport Some more quirky cards from Umpen Editions, this time vintage London Transport greetings cards, going under the name Mind The Gap and based on vintage poster art used by London Transport from the 1934 to the 1976.

The mid-century era was the golden age of poster art and London Transport wasn't afraid to give commissions to avant-garde designers, with the likes of Abram Games and Tom Eckersley getting work with the company. In fact, the image to your right is by Abram Games, titled Sightsee London and dated from 1968.

You can download a pdf document on the Umpen site with all the card designs featured. And while you're there, you can check out the list of stockists.
