Hand-drawn map of modern London

It's getting to be that time of year when genealogy news thins out and I need to cast the net wider to find blog-fodder. You have been warned.

Regular readers know I have an attraction to maps. I love this one featured on Mapping London where it comments     "It’s a hand-drawn map of central and inner-city London. Tube/train lines, parks and rivers are coloured, everything else is shown in black-and-white. Buildings are all drawn in a 45-degree isometric style. Annotations reveal characteristics of an area that won’t appear on traditional maps."

The artist is Jenni Sparks. Read her blog at: http://jennisparks.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/hand-drawn-map-of-london.html
