Stephen Walter’s London Subterranea, another art map featured in Claire Dobbin’s book (and one of her choices of the best maps in the London Transport Museum collection). It’s been posted to io9 and Londonist today, with the latter providing close-ups along with a a good description:
Walter has painstakingly charted the buried rivers, Tube lines, bunkers, sewers, government tunnels and other hypogeal secrets of London. He’s also included mysterious and underworld elements, such as unsolved murders, ley lines and pagan burial sites. Like his famed 2008 work The Island, to which this is a companion piece, London Subterranea is a mesmerising tagliatella, combining painstaking research with artistic whimsy.
As they note, it’ll be displayed at the London Transport Museum’s Mind the Maps Friday Late tomorrow.
