Transit Art First

News of this MoMA exhibition of London Underground posters from the Roaring 20’s through the war-strewn 40’s led me to this Flickr photo set on London underground posters.  Many of them are fabulous, but I really like this pro-tourism / WWI propaganda campaign poster:

Along the same lines, I came across this set of Tokyo subway posters from 1976 to 1982.  These are equally trippy (I particularly like the last image of John Wayne).
