'A Pocket of Pocket Maps - Set of 10 Reproduction Underground Maps'
In 1908, a new pocket map was designed to guide passengers on London's underground railways. With every new edition, designers strove to simplify the design. A major breakthrough came in 1933 when a new diagrammatic version by Harry Beck provided an enduring solution. The current map remains an evolution of Beck's original design.
2013 celebrates 150 years of the London Underground, the world's oldest underground transport system. To celebrate this, the London Transport Museum has launched an exclusive collection of gifts and accessories inspired by unique imagery of London Underground logos and poster archive.
To celebrate Tube150, the London Transport Museum has created this collector's edition of a pocket map set with 10 historical Underground maps including the most recent Tracy Emin design PLUS an additional current Underground map featuring the 150 logo.
