Pentagram partner Marina Willer has created a new book of rubbings of London drain covers, entitled Overlooked.The publication forms the agency’s 45th Pentagram Paper, and comprises 22 rubbings taken of London’s street covers “from Islington to Kensington” alongside an essay by Willer.
According to Pentagram, the tome “tells the history of London through street covers, outlining the vital roles that each piece of street furniture had in serving Londoners” and “serves as a reminder that a city’s beauty isn’t limited to art galleries or grand architecture, and that intricate design is everywhere.”
