This book picks up where Ken Garland completed his work (Mr Beck's Underground Map), to take the story of the map from when Harry Beck's services where dispensed with, to the present day. Based upon extensive research of London Transport archives and at London Transport Museum, this book surveys the major changes that have taken place over the years and the reasoning and political background that led to them.
London Transport Museum's latest Mind the Map exhibition is about the inspiration, history and creativity behind London transport maps. Mind the Map: inspiring art, design and cartography draws on the Museum’s outstanding map collection to explore the themes of journeys, identity and publicity. The exhibition is the largest of its kind and includes previously unseen historic material and exciting new artworks by leading artists including Simon Patterson, Stephen Walter, Susan Stockwell, Jeremy Wood, Claire Brewster, and Agnes Poitevin-Navarre.
