Hand Drawn Maps of London

Postby Nick » Fri Apr 23, 2010 12:23 pm

As Londonist says Google Maps are all very well for presenting information. But where’s the charm? Where’s the love? Reminded earlier this week about the special allure of hand-drawn charts, they thought it’d be fun to revive the idea of homemade cartography.

They’ve asked us to draw a map of our local area, be it home or work, indicating all the corners, bars, parks, features and characters that are important to us, then photograph your work and send it to tips@londonist.com, or upload it to Flickr and tag it Londonist. They’ll show the best ones on their site.

If your map is of Pimlico, and shows the location of Pimlico Flats, then e-mail it to me and I will publish it on this site. This is what I did, but I am sure that you can do better. Here is my map on Londonist complete with witty commentary.
