Our Next Event

British Writer and Broadcaster Mark Ovenden talks about and signs his New Book, Transit Maps of the World

Thursday 18 February 2016
7:30 pm

‘Ovenden does what no other design history book has ever done. Transit Maps of the World is a must-have’ The New York Times Book Review

Transit Maps of the World is the first and only comprehensive collection of historic and current maps of every urban train system on earth. Using glorious, colourful graphics, Mark Ovenden traces the history of mass transit, including rare maps, diagrams, and photographs, some barely seen since their original publication. Transit Maps is the graphic designer's new bible, the transport enthusiast's dream collection, and a coffee-table essential for everyone who has ever navigated a city.

Mark Ovenden is a British writer and broadcaster. At the age of seven, he travelled alone ten miles on the London Underground, armed only with a map. He later gained entry to a Graphic Design course by submitting a reworking of the London tube map. His previous books are Great Railway Maps of the World, Metro Maps of the World, Paris Metro Style and London Underground by Design. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society.

Tickets are £3 and are deductible from the cost of the book (£16.99 paperback) if purchased on the evening.
