I saw these in Austria and was reminded of Kew’s Chihuly exhibition which starts next week. I see visitors there recently have had a sneak preview of some of the pieces as they were being assembled.
I made do with the advert I saw on the Tube 😉
I can’t wait to see it 🙂
Intriguing shadows in the new Paddington Central area in London.
Since the last time we met Brunel, he’s moved platforms* and become one of London’s Talking Statues.
Hugh Bonneville plays the part of Brunel. I can feel another London project coming on…
* = The Paddington bench currently resides where Brunel used to be. They remind me of the Musical Statues game we used to play as children 😉
How wonderful to find this poster advertising an exhibition which celebrates the Johnston Typeface.
The typeface was commissioned in 1913 by Frank Pick, the Commercial Manager of the then Underground Electric Railways Company of London.
As you can see by the adjacent poster, this iconic typeface is still in use on the Tube today.
Just along from the ‘Bear’ with us sign featured previously, this fantastic new bench has appeared 🙂
The statues move at Paddington station. This is where Brunel was a few months ago, and Paddington Bear used to be here…
