Description

A collection of quotes on boards appearing on London Underground written by TFL employees E1 (Everyone) and N1 (No One). There’s going to be a lot of disappointment; we’ve told people we look like George Clooney,’ he laughs, alluding to the fact that in the beginning, the pair would wear celebrity masks when writing or wheeling out the boards.

On the second day, she put on a disguise and filmed herself laughing on the Tube as no one realised it was her. For more picture-book characters crossing over to board books, look for the bilingual Alma and Her Family / Alma y su familia and Alma, Head to Toe / Alma, de pies a cabeza (Candlewick; Alma and How She Got Her Name, rev.

Transport for London employees and dynamic masked duo, All on the Board (aka Jeremy and Ian), made it their mission to bring smiles to the faces of London commuters through writing creative messages, quotes and poems on the underground’s service information boards. First they needed permission to display their poems on spare boards where passengers could see them. Great literature this is not and, to be fair, doesn't aspire to be, but the reliance on everything rhyming just got to me in the end and I found myself scanning. The classic song “The Wheels on the Bus” is adapted for each child, and there are two cardboard wheels to spin while singing. The 2023 board book editions of Big Red Fire Truck and Big Silver Spaceship, both by Ken Wilson-Max with paper engineering by Jo Lodge (Boxer), strengthen and simplify interactive features from these out-of-print picture books to ensure that toddlers can slide fire trucks, raise ladders, and spray (imaginary) water with gusto.

Three years on and the duo have clocked up 600,000 followers on their social channels, and count a ream of celebrities including Liam Gallagher, Katy Perry and Michelle Obama among their snap-happy fans. Anyone who has travelled on the London Tube or been on Twitter will have no doubt seen a quote from All On The Board. Movie scores tell stories without lyrics and as a huge movie fan, if I couldn’t watch a movie I would listen to the music and imagine the movie or reimagine it in a different setting. Please note, we ask for a minimum advance booking size of 4 people on a Friday and Saturday but still welcome walk-in groups of 3 or less on these days.These two Transport For London employees have in fact been sharing uplifting messages and poems on the announcement boards across the English capital’s train network for the past four years.

And to cultivate mystique, they adopted the noms de plume N1 and E1, a play on London’s system of postcodes and shorthand for “No one” and “Everyone”.I’ve never had the honor of spending a considerable amount of time with a person of exceptional experience, knowledge and integrity to be able to say I was mentored. Here, accordion-fold binding makes the book a perfect engagement tool for infant tummy-time sessions, when little ones lie on their bellies to build up core muscles.
