Abstract:
Using the posters designed by E. McKnight Kauffer this thesis aims to contribute towards a better understanding of poster design and production in the inter-war period and extend previous scholarship relating to his work. Five areas of research have been identified and meticulously investigated: All known archival sources have been visited, both in the UK and in the USA, to ensure accuracy of information; an inquiry into how work was commissioned and his relationship with clients; an investigation into the process in which artists' original designs were interpreted and redrawn by skilled artisans at lithographic printing companies; an examination of the public's and critics' reaction to his work; a study of his artistic influences and working methods.
