Description

From Norman Foster's remarkable station at Canary Wharf to the Yellow-brick vaults of Baker street to the Art Deco exuberance of Arnos Grove, London's tube stations are among its most distinctive and iconic buildings. This beautiful hardback edition is a fantastic gift-book, publishing in the run up to Christmas, and sales will be boosted even further by the much-loved network's 150th anniversary in 2013.show more
