Unknown Artist

Many motor racing posters of the past were designed by studio artists and did not have specific artists attributable to them. In general only the bigger more important races employed well known artists of the time such as Geo Ham, Michel Beligond and Michael Turner. It is for this reason we created the 'unknown' artist under which to show many of our collection of original vintage posters.

In addition we stock a small selection of motoring and motor racing related gifts. Of course these too are not made by specific artists in most cases.
