Vol. 3 goes on the presses next week after the proofs were checked and passed. This is going to be a colourful book.

Whilst some of the modern images required little attention, some of the older GWR and early BR posters had suffered damage so the cleaning of these took some time.

The book will be available for the Stoneleigh auction in January but in the meantime we are are taking orders (see our order page) for Vol. 3.

Work has already begun on Vol. 4, which is going to be another large book. Norfolk and Essex featured heavily in railway advertising strategies and Lincolnshire & Suffolk also saw many posters produced. The cover (Purvis’s wonderful Norfolk Broads) is shown alongside . There will be nine chapters in this book and over 380 posters inside.
