'Visit' Series - Lander Summary

In 1978 Reginald Montague Lander produced the "Visit" series of posters for the Southern Region, covering Castles, Cathedrals and Abbeys all of which were easily accessible from Southern Region trains.
The artwork for this series is almost in the style of etchings, in intricate detail, showing the respective buildings highlighted in their surroundings. This was long after photographic posters were the norm, and there is no question that art will always outshine photography on a poster because it's not just showing simple reality.
All are Double Royal size (approx 40 x 25in or 101.5 x 63.5cm).
All are Original Vintage British Railways Travel Posters.
More detailed photos are available on request if required.
