    Interesting piece of work....

    Small section

    .... and who knows, could even have a few new gems :eek::

    Article about it HERE

    Admitedly the full map will set you back £4,000 (so you might want to put it in a plastic bag if taking it underground)

    Who knows, perhaps someone will visit the exhibition and get some decent high res pics?

    I like that a lot, seeing as I haven't been to any exhibitions for a while I will start here!

    Although looking at the samples it's a blinding mess. More likely to be made me a class of 7 year olds than anything else.

    I saw something similar earlier today actually. Might have been on bookface. Looked like a right mess to be honest...

    You can get detailed sewer/LU/subterranean maps for free on the internet anyway..

    Yep, but this one has all those rumours and legends on it too - and it wouldn't be the first time one of those has proved true :p:

    From what I can see, Blake's Gold is the closest to me so I'm off to Regents Park.

    The point that it is a mess and expensive is taking it out of context. Its function isn't necessarily a map, it is a piece of work by an artist just with clues.

    I went for a look today. As an artwork it's quite interesting and if I had a spare 35 nuggets I might buy the poster, but I don't so I won't. As a map, it has some quite severe problems; quite a few locations are missing so it's not complete. Also, it's only about a1 size so everything is really small, I needed my glasses to read it.

    Given how few people, compared to how many could have explored beneath London... by now id say such a map is wasted. And its an inaccurate mess to boot.
