Description

In the mid-1970s, in a disused taxi-meter factory, a group of artists and designers opened Paddington Printshop. Specialising in making posters for local campaigns, it quickly became a model of community activism, crystallising a wide range of causes into brilliant and memorable images. Anyone could come in to request a poster (although ‘nothing sexist, racist or commercial please!’).
