Another day, another map and another #mapgasm post. Actually another 2 maps, both of which are by Max Roberts and both of which have appeared on Annie Mole’s Going Underground blog.

Continuing my fascination with the map of the London Underground, which I may have posted about before, Max has been wondering what the Tube Map would look like if it was all curved.

Or maybe, just maybe what it would be like if the Tube Map was circular, in the most literal of fashions.

I wonder what Harry Beck would think of these re-imaginings of his iconic map; I think he’d probably approve.

I would have loved to have seen that talk. Max's website was down when I check but it seems to be back up now so I'll add a link. -Gary
