London Underground Maps Art, Design and Cartography
By documenting and guiding us on the journeys we make every day, maps influence the way we navigate and identify with our surroundings. The Underground, London Transport, and its successor Transport for London, have produced and inspired maps which are navigational, decorative forms of publicity and works of art. This book, which draws on the rich collections of the London Transport Museum, sets out to explore this unique form of visual communication. An accessible narrative coupled with first-class imagery make this book a must for lovers of art, design and cartography as well as the history of London.
