2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

The workes of William Shakespeare, containing all his comedies, histories, and tragedies : truely set forth, according to their first originall : a flickbook by Abram Games( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1975 Abram Games, one of Britain's greatest graphic designers, was commissioned to make a fund-raising poster for the Royal Shakespeare Company. His brilliant solution was to become iconic: the face of Shakespeare built up from the titles of all the plays as they appear in the First Folio. The poster has been seen all over the world; but Abram Games intended much more. After his death, his daughter Naomi discovered a mock-up he had made of a flickbook. As the reader flicked the pages, Games planned to make Shakespeare's face gradually emerge. Now at last Games' original project is coming to life. All 37 plays are included, in the order they are printed in the First Folio of 1623, ending with Pericles, Prince of Tyre, added to the collection in the Third Folio of 1664. At the end, the playwright makes a graceful exit, marked by the poems and the lost or doubtful plays. The book is completed with some favourite quotations, and the date of each work
