The BPMA houses some of Britain's most iconic objects from red pillar boxes and Royal Mail vans to Penny Black stamps. The Royal Mail Archive includes outstanding examples of mid-century modern graphic design in the form of posters and artwork by designers including Lewitt-Him, Tom Eckersley, Edward McKnight Kauffer and F.H.K. Henrion. Also included are thousands of iconic GPO 'hey-day' photographs, advertising design, postal maps and many unusual items such as our extensive collection of Valentines cards.
