Departmental cache of underground literature revealed

Sam Merrill and Professor Richard Dennis’s ongoing Underground adventures have at last borne fruit with three sets of publications all appearing at the beginning of November.

A special issue of The London Journal edited by Richard, Sam and Carlos López Galviz includes papers by all three editors along with contributions from Sir Peter Hall, David Pike, Delcia Keate and Sam Mullins:

Sam and Carlos have also edited a lavishly produced collection of essays, Going Underground: new perspectives, which includes essays by both editors and by Richard Dennis along with papers by other contributors to the ‘Going Underground’ conference held in January.

Sam’s piece on the American artist, Frederick Abrams’ ‘Underground Cathedral’ and Yangchen Lin’s imaginative photographic essay help to make this the ideal Christmas present for the cultured Londoner!

The book is published by the London Transport Museum: http://www.ltmuseumshop.co.uk/gifts-and-souvenirs/books/underground/product/going-underground-new-perspectives.html .

More modestly, Richard’s sell-out lunch-hour lecture, Gower Street to Euston Square: a local history of the Underground, is now also in print, part of the latest issue (no. 37) of the Camden History Review.
