London Underground

On my amazing trip to NYC this weekend, I made a point to get to the MoMA. There was an exhibit on London Underground posters from the 20s through the 40s. Apparently, after WWI London Underground street posters began turning the tunnels into works of art. The posters were designed by significant artists like Laszlo Moholy-Nagy - but my favorites were from E. McKnight Kauffer. They had about 20 on exhibition. Here are my favorites.

Here are a few of my own pictures from the museum exhibit. In case anyone is wondering, the treatment on the pics is from the LOMO application I have on my iPhone.
