London Maps: The Magical, the Methodical and the Multifaceted
In association with TAG Fine Arts, Londonist recently hosted an evening devoted to the many many forms and uses of London maps.

The full audio recording of this event will be available on Londonist soon, and the accompanying exhibition The Art of Mapping runs at Air Gallery on Dover Street until 26 November as part of the London Mapping Festival.
