Archives and the brilliant modernism of Theyre Lee-Elliott at Quad Royal:
This very pure, almost continental modernist design is by Theyre Lee-Elliott, who I’d never come across before.  But it turns out that  he also designed the archetypal airmail wings, as well as the Imperial Airways Speedbird logo, a design which endured beyond Imperial’s incorporation into BOAC and well into the time of British Airways. Those two designs alone – both classics which survived well past World War Two and beyond – should have been enough to secure [him] more fame than he currently has.
