Early 20th century Biritsh travel posters by painter Norman Wilkinson.

I’ve always been interested in the aesthetics of British art and design of this period, and Wilkinson is definitely of my favourites. He and a few of his peers developed a style that involves highly detailed and beautiful landscapes rendered in mainly flat colour. This gives the paintings a very modern and graphic look, reminiscent of the styles of many contemporary illustrators working in vectors rather than paint.

I’ve never managed to find anything that explains how this style came to be or why, but its definitely an interesting moment in the 20th century transition from artists and commercial artists to graphic designers and illustrators.

You can see more of these posters here.

Bonus fact: Wilkinson is credited as the inventor of dazzle ships, the crazy graphic camouflage that made ships simultaneously harder to spot and much more funky during the First World War.
