'..makes a superb gift that will keep any Londoner, or any visitor to the capital for that matter, informed and diverted for years.' ----- RA Winter
'Several books have been published on London Transport posters, but this surpasses them all.' ----- Grahame Boyles
'Every page of this book offers the reader images of the diversity of subject-matter and artistic style that have exemplified London Transport Posters over the last century... This is a book with wide appeal; it would be the ideal complement to a visit to the London Transport Museum for the general visitor, while offering a sound introduction to the subject for those seeking a deeper understanding of this important design phenomenon.' ----- Cassone
