The wartime work of Abram Games

'Abram Games: His wartime work' book cover

Join Naomi Games as she explores her father's wartime work which features in our special exhibition, 'The art of persuasion'.

On de-mob in 1946, Captain Abram Games, creator of 100 war posters and holder of the unique title of 'Official War Poster Artist', felt well qualified to resume his career as a freelance designer. He soon became one of Britain's most notable poster artists. 

In this engaging talk, Naomi Games - Abram's daughter - will examine many of these posters, especially those he designed during the Second World War.

Being the son of a photographer, Games employed many ingenious photographic tricks to convey his message of 'Maximum Meaning, Minimum Means'.
