What do John Hoyland's boots, Peter Blake's photomontages and Laura Knight's drawing of Venus have in common? They've all featured on Royal Academy posters. Every year, since the founding of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1768, there has been a Summer Exhibition. The open event annually draws 10,000 submissions from painters, printmakers, sculptors and architects. Selection is anonymous, and inclusion entirely on merit. It is the largest and most popular show of its kind in the United Kingdom. This year, for the first time, the Royal Academy has selected from its vast archive a collection of the posters that have helped make the event such a success. Posters: A Century of Summer Exhibitions at the Royal Academy brings together 75 posters that celebrate 100 years of contemporary visual culture. A more-than-fitting tribute to the competition that has launched the careers of many artists, Posters is also an absorbing journey through changes in poster design and typography, making it an unlikely sourcebook for designers and creatives as well as a perfect gift. Featuring work by: Peter Blake RA, John Bratby RA, Donald Hamilton Fraser RA, John Hoyland RA, Allen Jones RA, Laura Knight RA, Eduardo Paolozzi RA, William Roberts RA, Leonard Rosoman RA, Frank Stella Hon. RA, and Victor Pasmore RA. SELLING POINTS: An ideal gift for anyone interested in poster design and typography Showcases 75 of the most interesting and quirky designs, demonstrating the evolution of the posters over the past hundred years 75 colour
