The London Transport bar and circle – also known
as the bulls-eye or roundel – is an icon of commercial
design. Over the last century it has come to represent
not only London’s transport network but also the
city itself. Rare for the logo of a large organization,
the symbol is often perceived as being ‘cool’, and
its influence has extended into many other fields,
including fashion, pop music and counter-culture.
This fascinating book charts the history and
development of the symbol from the early 20th century
to the present day, and explores its use across the
company’s many activities, as well as its wide-ranging
cultural influence. Richly illustrated with poster
artworks, photographs and other graphic material
from the London Transport Museum archives, the
book features numerous inventive uses of the logo,
many of them previously unpublished.
• Looks in detail at the development and history of the iconic

• Charts the influence of the design in fashion and pop culture
