London Underground By Design by Mark Ovenden
Celebrating 150 years of the London Underground, this illustrated book charts the evolution of architecture, branding, typeface, map design, interior and textile styles, posters, signage and graphic design and how these came together to shape the Underground's identity. It also takes in the people behind those things, from the designers and architects to the illustrators and textile designers.
If you love the tube and you want to wallow in its past, this 288-page book is available for £12.80.
