This is the first in Blue Crow's new series of maps dedicated to public transport systems. London Underground Architecture & Design is curated by transport design historian and broadcaster Mark Ovenden and includes photography by Will Scott. A two-sided cartographic guide which offers an original, authoritative and enlightening insight into architecture and graphic design for transport lovers, students of design and anyone interested in the history of London.
The guide includes a geographical Underground map with featured stations marked, with corresponding photography and details on the reverse. Of particular interest are the tips for where to find unique and unusual signage, roundels, clocks, murals and more. The map is protected by a slipcover featuring a distinctive die cut roundel.
Travel from the the beautiful double height geometric ticket hall at Acton Town to the handsome station at Willesden Green, complete with its green tesserae mosaic tiling.
