Over a remarkable career that spanned more than sixty years, Abram Games was a leading voice in 20th-century British graphic design. A modernist who used graphically charged symbols to catch the eye, he designed posters, signage, packaging, and other ephemera for such giants as the BBC, Shell, the Financial Times, Guinness, and the London Underground. During World War II, he was England’s official war poster designer, a position from which he oversaw the design and production of hundreds of posters calling on Britons to stand fast and support the Allied troops. Abram Games: His Life and Work is the first monograph on this design legend whose work helped to define the look of modern English culture.
