Abram Games: Design is an intriguing introduction to the graphic work of Abram Games. With images drawn from his personal archive, many less well known, it is possible to follow the social history of 20th Century Britain. For more than six decades Abram worked entirely on his own, always adhering to his personal maxim of ‘maximum meaning, minimum means’.
From the start, Abram Games was determined to become one of Britain’s great poster designers and would often say, “I have a small talent which I polish like a diamond.” A first generation Londoner, and an autodidact, he maintained that the three qualities a designer needs are curiosity, concentration and courage. These he had in abundance.
