Hello Poster to Poster collectors,
Geoff Courtney has been a friend of Richard Furness and a great supporter of the unique Poster to Poster series of award-winning books – now standing at eight volumes. Geoff has written a farewell review of the eighth volume, and the series, which appeared in Heritage Railway.
‘It’s been a marathon, writes Geoff Courtney, with every step being recorded in Heritage Railway. Now, though, it’s over, and Richard and Judi Furness can relax in the glow of an astonishing series of handsome coffee-table books that has raised the profile of railway posters to a new and previously unattained level.’
‘So it’s come to an end, after 15 years, half a million words, 2100 pages, more than 3000 images of posters. 20,000 man-hours of research and writing, profiles on nearly 500 poster artists, and two book awards. A monumental achievement that has been acclaimed by BBC Antiques Roadshow expert and railway enthusiast Paul Atterbury as “one of the most ambitious and spectacular set of books in recent publishing history”’.
The full review can be viewed on our reviews page.
