This Adventure uncovers the story behind the Met Police’s famous revolving sign, relocated to their new HQ on Victoria Embankment in 2017. Its creator, Edward Wright, is a largely unsung twentieth century designer and teacher, who also developed Flaxman, the typeface used both on the revolving sign and for wayfinding throughout New Scotland Yard.
