Tube maps! In Lego!
A labour of love in 1,000 bricks popped up at Green Park tube this morning. From a promotional leaflet found for me by a kind ticket officer who was as impressed, bemused and up for finding some way of taking the map home as I was:
To celebrate the 150th anniversary [of the London Underground] LEGO has built five Tube maps ranging from the early pre-Harry Beck map where the lines follow their geographical position to Beck’s 1933 original and a future gazing map. Each LEGO Tube map is made up of 1,000 LEGO bricks and measures 140cm x 100cm. The maps have been made by Duncan Titmarsh, the UK’s only LEGO Certified Professional.
From 12 June for 12 weeks the maps will be displayed in ticket halls at Piccadilly Circus, South Kensington, Green Park, King’s Cross St. Pancras and Stratford Tube stations, before being moved to the London Transport Museum.
