“Observe, my dear child, how dexterously has the artist delineated his subject,” says a gentleman in MacDonald “Max” Gill’s 1914 map of London. In this wry work’s self-described “artful devilry,” a motor bus chases a man down Peckham Road (he is not amused); polo players hurl ham hocks instead of swinging mallets; and a cart horse declares “Modestine’s my name, carrots my solace.” Meant to attract riders to the Underground, this diverting illustration is filled with quips and quirks.

Gill (British, 1884–1947), younger brother of sculptor Eric Gill, was a skilled and versatile architect, artist, designer, and illustrator. His poster is in the collection of London Transport Museum, which houses one of the world’s finest poster archives.
