Poems on the Underground
Poems are displayed on posters in 3,000 advertising spaces in train carriages across London, and are usually changed three times a year. They are selected by Judith Chernaik, together with poets Cicely Herbert and Gerard Benson.
The British Tourist Authority has also sponsored some of the project's special themes.
The programme aims to showcase a diverse range of poetry, including classical, contemporary, international and work by up and coming poets.
It has proved to be an excellent way of introducing the public to poetry, with passengers often wanting to read more.
This has lead to the publication of a series of Poems on the Underground books, which is now in its 11th edition.
The latest book is available from the London Transport Museum shop, which also sells copies of the poem posters.
