“Beck and Beyond” at the LTM


The London Transport Museum appear to have an interesting talk on Wednesday 20th June as part of their “Mind the Map” Exhibition season – a talk looking at the legacy of Beck’s iconic Tube map from several perspectives. Details can be found below, for those who may be interested (this author already has his ticket).

Join senior curator Claire Dobbin, writer Mark Ovenden and psychologist Maxwell Roberts for three different perspectives on the design and legacy of Harry Beck’s diagrammatic Tube map. From a speculative proposal to London Underground in 1931, Beck’s now iconic design has come to represent a major breakthrough in transport mapping and communication graphics.

Tickets £10.00 (£8.00 concessions) includes entry to the event plus a free visit to the Museum within one month. Museum annual ticket holders £8.00 (£6.00 concessions)
