Londonist Hand-Drawn Maps Exhibition At Museum of London

Map of Anglo Saxon London, under constructionExciting news – our series of hand-drawn maps of London is to be turned into an exhibition at the Museum of London.

Over the past year, we’ve been publishing hand-crafted maps of various bits of London, drawn by readers. You can view the complete set of entries here, including Brixton as a tree, and this beauty.

Now, we’re delighted to say that the Museum of London will be running an exhibition of the best hand-drawn maps, from 21 April next year.

That’s still a long way off, so there’s time for new submissions. If you’d like to be considered for inclusion in the exhibition (and be featured on Londonist), simply send us a doodle of your local neighbourhood, the area you work in, or some random part of town that deserves more attention. Or get really creative and draw London in the year 3000, or London based on works of fiction, or an animal’s eye view of London…or whatever your imagination can come up with.

Send all entries to hello – at – londonist.com. There’s no real deadline, but the sooner you send something in, the sooner we’ll put it up on the site.

By the way, the image shows a sneak peek of a giant map of Anglo Saxon London, currently undergoing its finishing touches. Stay tuned for that one.
