A beautifully illustrated and comprehensive history of one of the world's most celebrated design achievements, and of the visionaries who brought it to life. Since its establishment 150 years ago as the world's first urban subway, the London Underground has continuously set a benchmark for design that has influenced transit systems from New York to Tokyo, Moscow to Paris and beyond. London Underground by Design is the first meticulous study of every aspect of that feat. Beginning in the pioneering Victorian age, Mark Ovenden charts the evolution of architecture, branding, typeface, map design, interior and textile styles, posters, signage and graphic design and how these came together to shape not just the Underground's identity, but the character of London itself. This is the story of celebrated designers - from Frank Pick, the guru who conceptualised the modern Tube's look under the 'design fit for purpose' mantra, to Harry Beck, Tube diagram creator, and from Marion Dorn, one of the twentieth century's leading textile designers, to Edward Johnston, creator of the distinctive font that bears his name, as well as Leslie Green, designer of central London's distinctive ruby-red tiled stations, and the Design Research Unit's head, Misha Black, who in the 1960s rebranded British Railways and created the Victoria line's distinctive style, and Sir Norman Foster, architect of Canary Wharf station. Rich with hundreds of illustrations, some never before seen, London Underground by Design shows that design is not just about aesthetic pleasure, but is crucial to how we get around.

The Airbus A380 is the world’s most recognised and most talked about airliner since the Boeing 747 and Concorde appeared in the skies in the late 1960s. Designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market, it made its first flight in April 2005, entering commercial service two years later with Singapore Airlines. This jet has become so popular that every four minutes--24 hours a day, seven days a week--an A380 is taking off or landing somewhere in the world. There is no other development in recent aviation history to rival this remarkable aircraft.
