A Preston illustrator has been putting his time during lockdown to good use.Advertisement
David Robinson has begun putting together retro travel posters about the city.
He said: “I decided to use the lockdown time to work on an idea I’ve had for a long time.
“Ironically, given the recent pandemic, it’s to create retro travel posters of Preston.
“I was inspired this range as I love the old style railway/travel posters from the 30s,40s and 50s, and I felt Preston has some beautiful buildings which would look great in that same Art Deco style.
“I did them in full colour at first and then used Preston bues, whites and creams which worked much better.”

David has so far drawn the Harris, Bus Station, Moor Park observatory and Preston Marina.
He’s planning to add Deepdale Stadium, Miller Arcade, Tulketh Mill and The Corn Exchange in the future.
The posters are £25 each and available to buy from David’s online shop.
