The exhibition, which opens on 11 June, takes place at a space run by the Black Dog Publishing company. It will showcase images from the book of the same name released by the publishers.
For both book and exhibition they trawled the archives of Shell and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, and includes work by Abram Games and Edward McKnight. The posters range across themes and subjects, taking in, among others, public health and safety, technology, popular culture, consumption and transport.
