P – Old Posters About Tea

Welcome to letter P and to this year’s Theme:

 The Glories of Tea With Stepheny

I love old posters. Pinterest has allowed me to collect many things I otherwise couldn’t. I fall out over old London Underground Posters, Book Jacket Illustrations, and Travel Posters for England and Italy. Knowing I was going to write about the glories of tea for the #Challenge, I started collecting the following hoping you would enjoy them too.

“In little more than a hundred years”, writes poster expert John Barnicoat, “it has come to be recognized as a vital art form, attracting artists at every level, from painters such as Toulouse-Lautrec and Mucha to theatrical and commercial designers. They have ranged in styles from Art Nouveau, Symbolism, Cubism, and Art Deco to the more formal Bauhaus and the often incoherent hippie posters of the 1960s.”
