800 Miles of Rambles Summary

Title - 800 Miles of Rambles.
- Heather (Herry) Perry (1893-1962).

- Rambling was a popular pursuit in the 1920s and 30s. This poster has a  very clever border design by Herry Perry, where the simple image of a man and dog striding across a field with a fence and tree behind, is reused and adjusted to show a version for each month of the year. The use of only three colours highlights the simplicity and effectiveness of the design. The London Transport Museum have a slightly different version of this poster, which doesn't mention the ticket office, only the bookstall.
