Notes

Limited edition, number 510 of 500 unsigned copies, from a total edition of 535 (35 issued on special paper). Kauffer was born in the United States but settled in England in 1914. He was a member of both Wyndham Lewis's Group X and the Cumberland Market Group. A good painter, Kauffer's real genius was in advertising art; he produced seminal posters for the London Transport Board and for the Great Western Railway, as well as book jackets and illustrations. "Kauffer's sprightly, jazzy, designs were part of the social fabric of progressive, forward-looking Britain in his time" (ODNB).
