Best known as a poster artist for the likes of London Transport, Guinness and BOAC, and the only official War Poster Artist during the Second World War, Abram Games's name is synonymous with groundbreaking design. But less well known is Games's work as a stamp designer, designing for Britain, Jersey and Israel. At this talk, Abram’s daughter Naomi reveals this lesser-known area of his work, his working processes and progressive sketches from his archive.
