Interesting piece of work....

Small section

Stephen Walter captures the world of underground London, the subterranean Tube lines, bunkers, sewers and more. His map is part of the London Transport Museum's new Mind the Map exhibition.
.... 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:

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.
