Hand-Drawn Maps Of London: Newcomer To Bloomsbury

Click to enlarge.

‘Four months off the boat’, London newcomer Yin Leow put this sketch together, showing the parts of our fair city that have meaning to her. Her map is as notable for its omissions as its inclusions – the parts of London that remain unexplored. She also mentions that the annotations do occasionally form part of some kind of story.

We’re now closing submissions for the hand-drawn maps exhibition at the Museum of London. However, we will continue to run the series on Londonist, so please keep sending your neighbourhood doodles to tips – at – Londonist.com.
