Whether he was creating book illustrations, advertising posters, or college murals, Edward Bawden (1903#150;1989), a one-time Official War Artist who documented WWII in watercolor, found his greatest muse in the city of London. This beautiful book, with almost 200 striking images, shows Bawden's unique view of the city in prints, posters, drawings, paintings, murals, and advertising material. The illustrations include early work executed while a student in the early 1920s; the Morley College murals carried out in partnership with the well-known artist Eric Ravilious; advertising work for London Transport, Fortnum & Mason, Twinings Teas, Shell, and Westminster Bank; Bawden's famous mural for the Lion & Unicorn Pavilion at the 1951 Festival of Britain; and some of his finest series of linocuts including London Monuments and London Markets.
