Back in March I shared Underground: How the Tube Shaped London, a book from the London Transport Museum. Platform For Art: Art on the Underground is another book from the museum's shop.
London Underground has long been a pioneer in the field of art and design, from the early twentieth century when it commissioned posters by artists such as Man Ray, Edward McKnight Kauffer and Graham Sutherland and the commission of Eduardo Paolozzi at Tottenham Court Road station in the 1980s, to the art programme, Platform for Art, rebranded as Art on the Underground in 2007.
The book explores the Tube's role in art development while detailing several specific art projects from the underground's past.
