London Transport Museum Shop

What’s the best bit of any museum? Always the shop! I discovered the London Transport Museum shop ages ago and kind of forgot to tell anyone about it. This was obviously a mistake as quite a few people have got in touch asking me about the prints I bought there so I thought it would be worthwhile shouting about it today. It is an online shop (if you don’t want to go to the actual museum) and they sell all sorts of London Underground memorabilia, from tube seats to cool old train hat racks. However, my favourite section is the posters collection. You can find every tube poster that has been designed in the last century – way too many to choose from.

Now don’t all rush at once but my first find from the LTM shop is the bargain of the decade. This set of four beautifully designed A4 prints cost – wait for it – £4.99. Seriously.

I also love the colours and bold design of these prints that cost £9.95 each (unframed). ‘Crocus Time’ by Herry Perry was printed in 1931 and ‘Bluebell Time’ by Anna Katrina Zinkeisen was printed in 1934.

Crocus Time and Bluebell Time are the perfect addition to my craft room.

      That’s the only problem, isn’t it? I’ve got so many pictures stashed under the beds in my flat as there’s just not enough wall space! x
