Historical Map: “Visitor’s London” Tourist Map and Guide, 1959
The inset central zone London Underground map is a black and white version of Beck’s diagram from the same year, but really, this is all about the fantastic illustrations (by Peter Roberson) and groovy mid-century graphic design. There’s only two colours used here – black and pink – but they’ve been used in a very striking and eye-catching way.
I wonder what was on the reverse of this?
