5.0 out of 5 stars It's an underground beauty, 14 Dec 2011
By 
This review is from: London Underground: Architecture, Design & History (Hardcover)
The tube's such a prosaic, everyday thing, I've never really appreciated its aesthetics (not easy when you're squashed into someone's armpit anyway). This book is the evidence that it's actually beautiful - the photographs are a revelation, and the story of how all this brilliant design came about is surprisingly gripping and wonderfully told. It's transformed my daily commute - I actually understand and appreciate my surroundings now. Good one to read on the tube, too, and learn as you go. If you can get a seat, of course.

I thought this too. I buy and read so many books on London and often think how it's too easy to take something so remarkable for granted when hurrying by.
