Tom Eckersley: A Mid-Century Modern Master
by Paul Rennie (Batsford £25)
The Post Office, London Transport, Shell and Guinness are just a few of the high-profile clients of renowned poster artist Tom Eckersley. This illustrated biography highlights his fundamental role in the transformation of 20th-century graphic design and offers a fascinating portrait of an evolving Britain. Eckersley’s posters use bold colours to grab the eye. I love his 1948 work for Seven Seas of a hunky sailor who has a striking resemblance to a Love Island contestant.
