This book examines alternative versions of the famous London Underground map that have been modified or reworked for a variety of purposes. Looks at modified versions of Beck’s classic design, as well as foreign language versions, experimental designs, older designs and maps adapted for specific uses. For the first time this book explores and reviews the alternative universes of mapping the London Underground, from early innovations and adaptations to challenging, rule-breaking explorations. With maps ranging from the derivative to the dumbfounding, issues of copyright and intellectual property are examined: at what point does plagiarism cease and creativity commence? An introduction to mapping London’s Underground is followed by chapters featuring many different designs and adaptations. Hardback. 96 pages.
