Book Description

7 July 2011
London Underground is renowned for its poster archive and the Tube has become 'London's longest art gallery'. Historically these eye-catching posters enticed prospective travellers indirectly by focusing on the destination rather than the mode of travel and as the Underground expanded so did its potential destinations - from the inner city, through suburbia and beyond to the rolling countryside. The London Underground Poster Diary 2012 focuses on posters from the 1930s - these are bolder, brighter and more adventurous than those of the 1920s and their imagery varies from traditional naturalistic scenes to more radical geometric and even abstract interpretations of a subject.



As well as Tube facts and trivia, the London Underground Poster Diary 2012 features posters by designers including Dora M. Batty, Charles Pears, Herry Perry, Zero and Man Ray.

Product Description

Review

Our most desired diary for 2012 is London Underground Diary packed full of handsome transport posters from the 1930s with art deco styling. (The Londonist)

The diary is nicely themed so that the posters largely match the seasons in the months they relate to. This goes to show how London Underground posters themselves were produced to encourage travel around seasonal activities.

The diary also features some fun Tube facts and trivia - so you could set up an impromptu London Underground Pub Quiz if you liked.

If you love the 1930's, art-deco, Poirot, pre-second World War period or just the London Underground in general, this really is a great diary. (London Undeground Blogspot)

This month we love… (Easy Living)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for lovers of art deco & Tube art 22 Nov 2011
This a very well thought out diary and I love how the posters are chosen largely to match the seasons. The Tube trivia is great and perfect if you wanted to set up an impromptu pub quiz. It has a handy pocket on the inside back cover which would be a good place to hold Tube maps & other stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like the poster images 1 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
The images of the old posters are good,of their time, colourful and cheerful and I like the layout with a page to view on one side so that I can plan my week ahead. The only disadvantage is that there is no underground map, which is an odd omission for an underground diary. Overall apart from that I am very happy with it.
