The Poster Girls exhibition at the London Transport Museum will highlight the important contribution that female designers have made to poster design during the last 100 years.

The exhibition will share the stories behind over 150 posters and original artworks by leading artists such as Mabel Lucie Attwell, Laura Knight, Enid Marx and Zandra Rhodes, as well as some extraordinary works by long-forgotten names.
