This is The Tate Gallery By Tube (1987), by David Booth of the design agency Fine White Line. Take a trip through the best examples of London cartography with a selection of pictures from Mind the Map exhibition at London Transport Museum

Love these London maps!

A Day to Remember: 3rd March 2012
The 39 Steps at The Criterion Theatre, Piccadilly Circus followed by the astounding art of David Hockney RA, A Bigger Picture, Royal Academy of Arts, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London.
If you’re in London and you haven’t seen David Hockney’s A Bigger Picture, I urge you to go along to the exhibition before it closes on 9th April 2012 
Thanks for a great day to my brother Paul

3. I Love Charts – ilovecharts.tumblr.comA mixed bag, this one. I Love Charts combines the just plain hilarious with the simply fascinating. Taking entries from all over the internet and beyond, an ILC post can be anything from a 19th century pie chart to a hand-drawn Venn diagram, and will almost always raise either a laugh or an eyebrow. For people who see the funny in a bar chart titled “Frequency of Lying” that spikes at “I have read and agreed to the Terms of Service,” or a colour-coded map of the states titled “Classification of young American females according to Brian Wilson.”
