I’ve seen this kinda thing on Twitter previously and enjoyed them, though recently there’s been a suggestion they might be generated rather than genuine.
So I was pleased to find a genuine Service Information poster on my last visit to London 🙂
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.
