London Underground map's beauty

Designed by Harry Beck the London Underground Map has it's beauty . It has already been studied by some scholars and Rudolf Arnheim in his "Art and Visual Perception" claims that it's harmony pleases the eyes. He says that by withdrawing geographic details and other informations is the best possible image of what is needed to inform. He says lots of things. Just look. If you are a British citizen try to forget it's utility. Perhaps it will be easier if you look at it upside down. Harry Beck worked many years to find this last version in 1960.
