If there’s ever a weekend to feel a bit patriotic I guess this one’s it!
I stumbled across these witty London inspired posters at indie art collective Evermade. I love this poster Tower Bridge and Beyond by illustrator Henry Billington which shows a steady stream of barges flowing through Tower Bridge. The description reads ” For centuries a vast diversity of river craft have ferried and carried, patrolled and dredged, sustained and pleasured us while The Thames flows eternally along.”
I also love the humorous sentiment of this poster by Hannah Tolson called Wherever, Whenever, We’ll Talk About the Weather which shows Londoner’s wherever they are talking about the weather – which is typically rainy – and the hilarious No Hats Indoors also by Hannah.
And a bustling sunny View of London on a good day by Sam Bevington
