Interesting Maps of London

I happened across this great web site today – with some fantastic maps drawn in rather different styles – and really not badly priced!

https://walkwithmemaps.com/

Founded by Pablo Baqué, the ‘Walk With Me’  project maps different neighborhoods of European cities from a new perspective. Through collaboration with illustrators of each city, Walk with me has published almost 20 maps in three cities to date: Madrid, Barcelona and London.

I particularly like this map of Shoreditch, illustrated by Ruby Taylor. Sized at 63 x 43 cm, it costs only £18 to purchase. I love the bright style and way it portrays this area as a vibrant part of our capital city:

S Newington.gifComing a close second is this map of Dalston and Stoke Newington by Martina Paukova coming in at the same price of £18.

Check out the site for the other maps of London, as well as those from Madrid and Barcelona. Lets hope some more locations will be added in the future!
