Mind the Map

Mind the Map: Inspiring art, design and cartography is a new exhibition opening at the London Transport Museum on Friday 18 May looking at the history and creativity of London transport maps.  

The exhibition is said to be the largest of it's kind and will not only showcase historic maps from the museums vast collection, but also new works by artists Simon Patterson, Stephen Walter (see his 'Map of Subterranean London' below), Susan Stockwell, Jeremy Wood, Claire Brewster, and Agnes Poitevin-Navarre.


"The displays will explore geographical, diagrammatic and decorative transport maps, as well as the influence of the iconic London Tube map on cartography, art and the public imagination. The Underground, London Transport, and its successor Transport for London, have produced outstanding maps for over 100 years. These have not only shaped the city, they have inspired the world."

Mind the Map will run until 28 October 2012, so there's plenty of time to see it, however if don't get chance to see it in person there is an accompanying book published by Lund Humphries, 'London Underground Maps: Inspiring Art, Design and Cartography'.
