The Independent Culture

Richard Furness's labour of love is an eight-volume definitive collection of British railway posters.

The series is the result of nine years' work (so far) and the books will be produced up until 2013. They are a mixture of travel documentary, geographic and historical study, and graphic artists' reference – all interlinked using the central theme of posters. This is an exquisite collection of art from a bygone era and a must-have for railway enthusiasts. Volume Four, covering the Eastern counties will be published in September.
