  • Why no Ed McKnight Kauffer?

    I simply cannot believe that you have no recognition of Ed McKnight Kauffer on this website. He was an amazing groundbreaking graphic artist - an American in Britain, he was never properly recognised in the states. Are you still prejudiced against him!


    Note from Moderator:

    I am adding this here as this post has received over 500 views. I don't know if "unregistered" has ever checked back to see if an answer was posted.

    I already knew why Ed McKnight Kauffer was not featured on Artcyclopedia (or at least I had an idea why). Artcyclopedia generally only lists artists that are represented in national art museums....and only lists "fine artists". Ed McNight Kauffer was a graphic designer. Much can be found about him online (do a Google search).

    Wikipedia has a brief biography (sources are listed):

    A more extensive biography (by Steven Heller - a noted expert in graphic design)

    Here are many of his poster designs (for London Transport and Underground):

    Some photographs of Kauffer and poster examples:

    Much more is "out there".

    Now Kauffer has been given recognition.
