The London Transport bar and circle - also known as the bulls-eye or roundel - is an icon of commercial design. Over the last century it has come to represent not only London's transport network but also the city itself.
This fascinating book charts the history and development of the symbol from the early twentieth century to the present day, and explores its use across the company's many activities, as well as its wide-ranging cultural influence. The book is illustrated with posters, photographs and objects from the London Transport Museum archives, many of them previously unpublished.
