London is instantly recognisable by its transport imagery

London Transport Museum’s exhibition Poster Parade: Re-imagining historical posters explores the pervasive influence of London’s transport design.

“I feel like London is the only city in the world which is instantly recognisable by its transport images, ” says Elizabeth Scott, head curator at the London Transport Museum. “The tube map, the roundel, the red bus – they’re all symbols of London itself.”

This influential power of some of London’s classic transport design imagery is reflected in The London Transport Museum’s latest temporary exhibition.

Poster Parade – a temporary poster show at the museum that changes every three months – has opened its first exhibition of 2017, Re-imagining Historical Posters. The curators have painstakingly picked 21 posters from their collections, a mix of historical, original posters and more contemporary ones which have been influenced by this iconic imagery.

Poster Parade: Re-imagining historical posters runs 27 January – 27 April 2017 on the Mezzanine, Level 1 at London Transport Museum, Covent Garden Piazza, London WC2E 7BB.  Source Extract from review by Design Week)
