You have to love this hand-drawn map by Stephen Walter. The level of detail is spectacular in his rendering of St James and Mayfair.

Walter has captured the hundreds, if not thousands, of businesses within this part of central London. Pubs, galleries, churches and banks all feature. Events feature too, including a teapot denoting the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko at the Millennium Hotel on Grosvenor Square.

Walter's map goes on show in London next week; the exhibition also feature a range of historic maps from the archives of Shapero Modern, dating back to the 17th century.

Stephen Walter's new map is on show at Shapero Modern, 32 St George Street, W1S 2EA from 22 June-6 July. Entrance is free and the gallery is open Monday-Friday.
