[ Book of the Week - The Jubilee Line Extension ]

It's difficult to believe that the Jubilee Line Extension has only been open for a year now. Taking the Tube has already become a natural part of travelling about in SE1. Yet every time I pass through Southwark I still marvel at the beauty of the of the station. The Jubilee Line Extension by Kenneth Powell (Laurence King Publishing, 25) is a celebration of this much-admired part of the London Underground. With a foreword by Chief Architect Roland Paoletti, the lavishly illustrated book looks in turn at each of the stations between Westminster and Stratford. But the book doesn't neglect service structures such as air vents and escape shafts, including the Redcross Way Substation. The conclusion explores the relationship between the JLE and the places it serves, including its role as a link to Tate Modern. * This book is available from at the special price of 20 - a saving of 5 on the cover price.
