beneath your station

Beautiful typography on this tile displayed on the uptown platform of the No. 1 train at the 59th Street-Columbus Circle subway station.

The tile was uncovered from behind a wall during the recent renovation. It was part of a 1901 exhibition by the architects Heins & LaFarge; They used this location to display their decorating ideas before the station was completed and the trains started running through it three years later.

I design books, magazines, and other communications, that POP! I blog about stuff that catches my eye.
