The ‘ox-blood’ red faience of many of London’s early 20th century Underground stations will be familiar to anyone who has visited the city. Most were designed by the architect, Leslie Green between 1903 and 1907. He was responsible for some 40 stations decorated with Leeds Fireclay Co faience (formerly Burmantofts) and featuring tiles from Maw and Co (through W B Simpson), George Wooliscroft and Son and others. All his stations are illustrated, including some that have been lost, revealing the subtle differences that occur, despite the unified design. A superb monograph and excellent value. For a full review see Glazed Expressions 46.
