Product description

Review

I wouldn't ordinarily enthuse about one book at such length, but this is an important work...not because it's an entertaining read (it is), but because it identifies the birth of a brand...and records the birth of a new idea - the transport interchange. (Kevin McCloud Grand Designs Magazine)

Mark Ovenden has devotedly documented the designs associated with [the Underground] ... "addictive" for anyone interested in the look of everyday life. (Telegraph)

A wonderful, handsome book ... it makes me want to nerd out, get a travel card and whiz out to the strange ends of Metroland or the UFO shape of Southgate station. (Robert Bownes/Andrew Tuck Monocle Weekly)

This beautifully illustrated history is a worthy tribute [to 150 years of design]. (Shortlist)

[Praise for Great Railway Maps of the World]: Just the ticket ... it is a glorious celebration of the pioneering history - and romance - of the railways (Sunday Times Travel Books of the Year 2011)

This is a terrific coffee table book. It's a work of art in itself. Mark Ovenden has created a book that will transport the lucky recipient on an eccentric and world tour they will not forget (Bookseller)
