Overview

For over 100 years, London Underground has been commissioning graphic posters from the best artists and designers in the country. By the 1980s, when the collection was transferred to the London Transport Museum, it contained more than 5000 printed posters and nearly 1000 original artworks. The collection has grown steadily ever since and is now a uniquely comprehensive picture of a century of British graphic design. This amazing archive of public art has been translated onto a range of home accessories.
