History is There to be Beaten

McCann London commission Bob Venables for an illustrated print to celebrate the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

The artworks are displayed in and around the Wimbledon ground for the two-week duration of The Championships and have the theme of ‘History is There to be Beaten’. Bob created one of the three posters featuring players from this year’s tournament rendered in a variety of vintage illustration styles -  each player is placed in a historical context, bringing to life the idea that true greats measure themselves not just against their peers, but against history.
