More About This Title London Transport Posters


London Transport Posters celebrates a century of outstanding graphic design commissioned by the Underground, London Transport, and its present-day successor, Transport for London. Drawing on newly researched sources in the archives of the London Transport Museum and Transport for London, the book discusses and illustrates the different styles and themes emerging from the posters over the last hundred years. It includes examples of over 250 posters from all periods and will be an invaluable reference book and visual resource for all those with an interest in 20th-century design.
