"Design is an excellent introduction to the graphic work and design of American-born Edward McKnight Kauffer (1890-1954). Kauffer was one of the outstanding graphic artists of his generation, creating some of the most memorable poster-images ever to adorn the billboards of Britain. Born in humble circumstances in Evansville, Montana, he progressed from itinerant theatre work to employment in a San Francisco bookshop, with time to study art. Chance meetings with a benevolent patron enabled him to continue his studies, first in Chicago, where, in 1913, he saw the Armory Show of modern European and American art, and then in Paris. On arrival in Europe he spent time in Munich , where he was overwhelmed by the posters of Ludwig Hohlwein. Reaching Paris in the autumn of 1913, his time there was curtailed by the outbreak of war. Planning to return to the US he quit France for England; however, an introduction to Frank Pick, the Publicity Manager of the London Underground, led to a commission for the first of many posters, and Kauffer remained in England for the next twenty-six years. His design, Flight, was purchased by Francis Meynell to launch the Daily Herald, and became one of the best known images of the twentieth century." "In addition to work for the London Underground Kauffer created powerful images for Shell, incorporating his innovative use of typography. He exploited a similar blend of Vorticist/abstract book design and typography for many dust-jackets, including those for The Week-End Book and Lytton Strachey's Eminent Victorians, whilst Roger Fry coined the phrase 'Cubisto-Cabbalistic' to describe his illustrations to Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy. He extended his range to include mural and stage design. The original costumes and sets for Ninette de Valois's Checkmate had to be abandoned in Holland during the War. In 1940, frustrated at the lack of challenging employment, he and his partner, Marion Dorn, abandoned everything and returned to America, where, in the post-war years, he created a further series of memorable posters for American Airlines."--BOOK JACKET
