An American Werewolf in London (1981)

I’ve long been a fan of werewolves; unfortunately, compared to the flourishing vampire genre, werewolf fiction kinda sucks (haha awkward pun). However, at the age of 25 I have finally found a werewolf movie that I genuinely like! (Turns out it normally tops the lists of best werewolf films, so this is as good as the genre gets, apparently).

Wimbledon. 1919. Andrew-Power.

24 ½ x 39 5/8 in./62.3 x 100.7 cm

Like a smart athlete who wastes no energy, this design inviting the London public to travel by Undergound to the Wimbledon tennis tournament uses the famous event’s name as the net. “Andrew-Power” was the signature of the joint studio of Sybil Andrews and Cyril Power, in which Power got the orders and Andrews created the designs. They had met at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London, where Power was a teacher and Andrews a pupil. Under the influence of Claude Flight, another teacher there, they adopted an avant-garde Futurist style whose hallmark was the depiction of movement and speed-certainly in evidence here.
