Underground Art

The phrase suggests fringe visual expression. Some art underground is far from fringe. Earlier this week London’s tube system turned 150 years. Its art underground quickly became mainstream. The font on its signs was created for it, and the font bears the name of its creator today. Lloyd Alter created a captioned slideshow illustrating the “incredible design influence” of London’s Underground.
