Product Description

It’s one of the most iconic features of London life, yet perhaps the least celebrated: the Johnston typeface, which has decorated signage throughout the entire London Transport system for a century. This book celebrates the Johnston typeface and its creator, Edward Johnston (1872–1944), bringing him long-overdue recognition as one of the key creators of our shared visual image of London life.

Richly illustrated with images from the London Transport Museum—including maps, posters, station signage, and much more—the book traces the evolution of the Johnston typeface from its first use in 1916 through the many subtle changes it’s undergone in the century since, all the way up to its broad deployment for the 2012 London Olympics. No lover of London life or transportation buff will want to miss this beautifully designed and produced volume.

  • History of Modern Design

    Laurence King Publishing. 2016. ISBN: 1856693481,9781856693486. 400 pages.

    "This insightful, wide-ranging book surveys applied arts and industrial design from the eighteenth century to the present day, exploring the dynamic relationship between design and manufacturing, and the technological, social, and commercial context in which the relationship developed. The effects of a vastly enlarged audience for the products of modern design and the complex dyanmic of mass consumption are also discussed. Part of this dynamic reveals that products serve as signs for desires that have little to do with need or function." -- book jacket.

  • Type

    I.B.Tauris. 2006. ISBN: 9780857730176,0857730177. 248 pages.

    Type is the bridge between writer and reader, between thought and understanding. Type is the message bearer: an art-form that impinges upon every literate being and yet for most of its history it has conformed to the old adage that ‘good typography should be invisible’, it should not distract with its own personality. It was only at the end of the nineteenth century that designers slowly realised that they could say as much with their lettering as writers could with their words. Form, of course, carries as much meaning as content. Now, anyone within reach of a computer and its limitless database of fonts has the same power. Type: The Secret History of Letters tells its story for the first time, treating typography as a hidden measure of our history. From the tempestuous debate about its...

The Panorama of the City of New York, model seen from the west
The Panorama of the City of New York, model seen from the west
A few years ago, I got to see a 1:1500 scale model of London at the Building Centre there. It is a large scale model of the heart of the city in three dimensions, with representations of most buildings, landmarks, parks, the Thames, and the (at the time yet to be built) Olympic Park. It's extremely impressive. And it is as nothing compared to The Panorama at the Queens Museum of Art. Here's two panorama photos to give a sense of the scale: • view from the “west” • view from the ”south” ⁂ Quoting from the Museum’s page on the The Panorama of the City of New York: The Panorama is the jewel in the crown of the collection of the Queens Museum of Art. Built by Robert Moses for the 1964 World’s Fair, in part as a celebration of the City’s municipal infrastructure, this 9,335 square foot architectural model includes every single building constructed before 1992 in all five boroughs; that is a total of 895,000 individual structures.
