To celebrate 150 years of the London Underground, NB were commissioned to produce a sheet of stamps, a presentation pack and a coin pack featuring two specially minted £2 coins, designed by Barber Osgerby. Their Miniature Sheet comprises of four stamps, each featuring three classic London Underground advertising posters, which together create a timeline of art on the Underground. All the materials use classic imagery sourced from the TFL poster archive and the graphic vernacular of the London Underground map. Working with Cambridge Professor Dr Stephen Halliday and the TFL team we created a timeline for the coin pack, combining key historical moments with some lesser-known facts and figures.
