Underground typefaces

The Czech magazine Typo (articles in English and Czech) has produced a special issue on underground fonts in France, the UK and the Czech Republic. The issue (PDF download) contains several fascinating articles on the development of the London Undeground map and font, and of the Metron font designed in the early 70s for the Prague metro.

The Prague Underground font is available for purchase from Storm, the Johnston (London Underground) font from P22.
