Santa's Lap: London Type Map

Every day until Christmas the Londonist team will be pointing you in the direction of a Christmas present that (with a bit of luck) you won’t already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we’ll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings…

This is lovely - a map of London areas and streets slotted together in typeface. It's not just zone 1 either; we can see Neasden in the north west and are pretty sure we can make out Hither Green in the south east. It was actually a struggle to tear ourselves away from poring over the close-up to tell you about it.

It's by Bold & Noble, a design collective founded by Jane Tobitt and David Wardle. The map's eco-friendly too, printed on 100% recycled card.

This map comes in grey or duck egg blue, is 50cm x 70cm and costs £38 + p&p.
