    Modern Cartography- a historical and cultural map to London

    English artist and ‘modern cartographer’ Stephen Walker has created maps of London that not only reflect geography but also include cultural remarks new and old on the Olympic city. The incredibly detailed work features historical landmarks, quotes, personal experiences of the author, and characterizations of each borough. 

    We suggest sorting through the miniscule type in 10 minute shifts- get too engulfed and your peepers won’t be  pleased.

    Infamous street artist Banksy has once again sparked controversy with the release of a critical series of work just days before the London Olympic games. According to the Guardian, London officials have already marked the works for removal in accordance with the strict image policy the city has put into place.  However, many critics have argued that Banksy and his fellow street artists embody London in a way that the ‘pristine’ image officials are hoping for does not.
