Railway poster series

Original photographs taken by me around Scotland have been through a series of processes to emulate a silk screen printing process. Originating in Japan this process became a popular form of mass printing in the 1920s and 30s, particularly for advertising. Artist Norman Wilkinson created a series of travel posters for Scottish Railways in the 1930s and these have been the inspiration for this series.

Large scale versions of these posters are displayed in Girvan railway station on the Stranraer to Ayr line in Southwest Scotland. The posters also highlight the National Autistic Society (NAS). 10% of all poster sales are donated to the NAS. These are available as posters and postcards and were very popular in Life’s Little Ironies Art Gallery.
