London’s Underground+

White Lion Publishing enlisted our help to design London’s Underground, a heavy tome that covers the history, development and future of London’s infamous underground train network. We were given unrestricted access to Transport for London’s archives and we commissioned Benjamin Graham to capture beautiful contemporary photographs of each station. The book was divided into colour coded chapters and the precise shades we used were sampled directly from the current tube map. We also commissioned designer Giovanni Rodolfi to illustrate graphic interpretations of the textile patterns used on the train seats.
