Vincent Brooks, Day & Sons and the Baynard Press were two of London’s best known lithographic printers, and Thomas Griffits, who worked for both companies, was the most respected master-lithographer of his generation. The list of artists and designers whose work was printed by the two companies, and examples of their work, overseen by the genius of Griffits and included herein, reads as a roll call of the time includes: ‘Spy’, Willy Pogany, Edmund Dulac, Barnett Freedman, John Piper and Edward Bawden. Amongst the many clients of the companies were London Transport, major railway companies, publishers such as Faber & Faber and Penguin, and shipping companies including P&O and The Orient Line.
