What we do

Shop the Quiet Hours by McKnight Kauffer. An original Modernist and important vintage poster for London Underground.


Conceived as advertisements for tourism, announcements for exhibitions and as political propaganda, vintage posters are highly evocative of their era and location and have huge graphic impact. This combination of cultural significance and visual appeal makes it is easy to understand why they are now collectable works of art in their own right.
