Can you read these Central Line stories?

Sometimes I think that art on the London Underground ought to be sponsored by brands. The piece below would be a perfect candidate for Specsavers.

Central Line Stories

Even if you had time to read the stories on this poster, you'd need to have incredibly good eyesight or certainly need a pair of glasses at the end of it.

Helpfully though you can read and even hear some of Sarah Butler's stories online.

Similar to the project where a photographer has taken pictures of staff from each station on the Tube system, staff on the Central tell small stories.

"Central line staff guided Sarah, introducing her to their colleagues and recounting personal tales. These initial conversations highlighted a very human desire to communicate through storytelling.

Together these stories offer the reader a glimpse into the rich imaginations, cultures and experiences of the London Underground staff who you may well encounter on your next Central line journey

Certainly more interesting than hearing them saying "Stand clear of the doors" or "The next station is Snaresbrook".
