1930s art deco Posters at the Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition poster by Austin Cooper at Habitat

Artdeco_poster

The title might be a little confusing, but essentially this is the poster for the Posters at the Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition – and it is available once more from Habitat online.

It's a lovely thing too. The poster screams the art deco era and actually dates back to 1931, when it was designed by Austin Cooper to advertise the exhibition on the London Underground. The subject matter was Mercury, messenger of the gods, a subtle reference to communication.

The poster has been reprinted by Habitat and is sized at 40 x 50cm. At a price of £15, it's a tiny fraction of the price of an original too.
