Jan Le Witt and George Him were a comparative rarity, a design duo. Both Polish by birth, they arrived in London in 1937, sponsored by the Victoria and Albert Museum and Lund Humphries. They established their reputation for fine poster work in World War II, and, for their exhibition work, with their much loved Guiness Clock at the Festival of Britain. In Poland, their illustrations for 'Locomotiva' helped make it a children's classic and they continued with book illustration throughout their partnership. Of very different temperaments and artistic interests, the partnership lasted some twenty years, to 1954, when Le Witt left to develop his career as an artist. Him continued his commitment to graphic design - illustration, exhibitions and general commercial work - most remarkable of which was his witty illustrations marrying Stephen Potters texts for Schweppes - 'Schweppeshire', one of the longest lasting advertisement campaigns. 28 colour and 4 b/w illustrations

This War is a Food War...' In 1941 Lord Woolton, Minister for Food, was determined that the Garden Front would save England: 'Dig for Victory' was the slogan, digging for dinner the reality. With food imports dwindling the number of allotments grew, millions opted to 'Spend an Hour with a Hoe' instead of an hour in a queue, and the upper classes turned lawns, tennis courts and stately gardens over to agriculture. The national diet was transformed, with swedes grown in the place of oranges and hapless children sucking on carrot lollies; evacuees grew their own meals and bomb sites sprouted allotments. Vegetables ruled the airwaves with Mr Middleton's 'In Your Garden' whilst Home Guard potatoes became the favourites of the Kitchen Front. This is a fully illustrated look at the time when gardening saved Britain.

Hans Schleger was a key figure in the history of graphic design. He pioneered the concept of corporate identity and his work has been hugely influential for subsequent generations of designers. Born in Germany into a Jewish family at the end of the 19th century, Schleger began his career in Berlin working for a film company called Hagenbeck, for whom he designed publicity material and some of the film sets. In 1924 he went to New York and was one of a handful of European emigre artists and designers who brought the Modernist approach to American advertising. Returning to Berlin in 1929, he worked for the English advertising agency, Crawfords, as Art Director, emigrating to England after Hitler came to power. He worked in London until his death in 1976.
