Penguin Books Underground Lines Boxset

My two favorite icons of British design, the London Tube map and Penguin Books, came together in this beautiful set to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the London Underground in 2013.  Penguin commissioned twelve authors to write short stories, each inspired by  one of the Tube lines.  The authors were Fantastic Man, Kids Company, Danny Dorling, John Lanchester, William Leith, Richard Maybe, Paul Morley, John O'Farrell, Philippe Parreno, Leanne Shapton, Lucy Wadham, and Peter York.  You can buy the set online at the Transport for London shop here.
