Marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of London Underground, the first ever subterranean railway, "The Roundel" presents the companies famous logo rethought and refashioned by one hundred international artists. Artists as diverse as Jeremy Deller, Sir Peter Blake, Roger Hiorns, Cornelia Parker, Yinka Shonibare, Gavin Turk, Susan Hiller and Richard Wentworth offer their personal take on the familiar motif, in photography or paint, drawing or print, collage or sculpture, revealing in their own words what inspired their creation. They follow in the footsteps of the many influential artists over the years, from Man Ray to Eduardo Paolozzi, who have taken the Roundel as a subject for their art, reflecting Londons importance as a capital city of culture. With an introductory essay by design writer Jonathan Glancey and illuminating texts that consider the works within the broader history of transport design and public art, this gem of a book will delight all lovers of London and transport fanatics, as well as those who follow the latest trends in art, design and corporate branding.
