I have had a bit of a slow start in my contributions to this Group. But here is Warren Street on the Victoria line, originally named Euston Road when it opened in 1907 on the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR) line, with the Victoria line being added in 1967.

 

What I've managed to include in this shot is the Warren Street 'warren', ie 'maze' mosaic by Alan Fletcher, designed as a visual pun on the station name. It was intended to amuse for the duratiion of the average 3 minute wait that passengers have for the next train!

  

I've found some interesting goodies lately. The cool clock was designed in the early 70's by Masayuki Kurokawa and is in the MOMA collection. The clam ashtray was designed by Alan Fletcher - I'm over the moon that I found that one. Never imagined I'd come across it.

The cover includes Francis Newton's name under the title but the colour contrast doesn't show it up.

Cover from the 1963 book "Graphic design: visual comparisons" (shown here is a reprint from 1966) by Alan Fletcher, Colin Forbes, and Bob Gill. In the sixties their firm was called Fletcher, Forbes, and Gill - which would later become the famous design international firm Pentagram. The book runs over 90 pages and is a great survey of conceptual graphic design.
